In this case, I think the step off and the LBR call are separate from the runner advancing on the original play, so the "no put out between bases" would not apply.

I would call it an out.

Can we retrain the baseball coaches?
I do not see where an LBR violation is an exception allowing a OBS runner to be called out between the two bases.
The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
