Appeal play?

Just did a game behind the plate. Girl did a half ass slide sitting up basically and her toe was close but never touched the plate. She jumped up like she scored, other team didn't say anything. Do I call her out when she enters dugout, or wait for an appeal by defense? I let it go because her team was getting blown out anyway. What's the right call?.... Still new at this.

A runner who has passed a base is assumed to have touched it until properly appealed. Say nothing and wait to see if the defense appeals.

She passed it when she got up and moved on, right? 😁

Think of ”passed” as “moved on to the next logical action”. This could be advancing to the next base, attempting to advance and then retreating, overrunning first base, or heading to the dugout after “touching” home plate.

Missed bases are appeal plays all the way.
