I agree with what GarthB asked. Why could not a coach argue that this side kept the first baseman from getting a double play. What about same type play in a first and third situation. Does the runner going to second have to slide directly into second base or can he not try to avoid being tagged and what if in this attempt he slides into the shortstop who is attempting to throw to home to get the runner who was on third base? Neither of these plays are "force" plays, so do you have the slide rule in affect?
