F9, backing up the throw, fields the wild throw and tosses it back to F3. After hurdling F3, BR puts on the brakes and scrambles back to 1B but has not reached it yet. F3 has the ball and is in contact with 1B, looks at you and says, "She missed the base, Blue."

You say...
Obstruction, award B1 first base.
The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
