Under no code is there judgment as to whether F4 "vacated his position." Th issue is:

OBR: Did the ball pass through or immediately by (that is, could the runner reasonably believe that the ball would be fielded?) F4 (or another fielder)? If not, it's interference.

FED: Did the ball pass farther from home than all fielders such that no infielder had a play? (Draw an imaginary line from F3 to F4 -- if the ball hasn't passed that line, it's INT.)
