batter runner with bat

Nov 30, 2019
Hi Everyone,
could some please let me know the ruling of a batter runner carrying his bat to first on an outfield hit with no play happening had a guy called out on an appeal by the catcher when i ask which rule as i had umpired for over 20 yrs until 2007.i have check ISF rule book and the ASF rule book in AUStralia and any latest rule changes a could not find this.the only rule i found was a batter-runner can be called out if he interferes with the play otherwise he is able to take bat around all the diamond whilst running thanks
