The only organization I know where multiple runners may be ruled out for leaving their bases early is NCAA. That's because unlike any other sanction, an LBE violation is a delayed dead ball at the college level.

For those where there's an immediate dead ball ruling, in theory someone left first. The umpires then have to judge which one left first should more than one runner be in violation.
"Let's face it. Umpiring is not an easy or happy way to make a living. In the abuse they suffer, and the pay they get for it, you see an imbalance that can only be explained by their need to stay close to a game they can't resist." -- Bob Uecker
