This is correct.

A) foul ball, batter awarded 1st base and base runners stay on 2nd and 3rd.
B)little dribbler to pitcher, runners advanced to 3rd and home on the play, runner threw out at 1st...????????? do you award batter 1st and send runners back or award 1st and let runners get 3rd and home....i'm thinking they go back and that is what i did the other night, just wanted to be sure....
It is catcher obstruction, BTW.

Anyway, if the BR does not reach 1B safely AND all other runner advance at least one base safely, then the OC gets the choice of the play or the enforcement of obstruction. The enforcement, of that is what he chooses, would be BR on 1B and other runners only advance if forced. In your second example, the OC would have to decide which is more important - scoring the run, or BR not out on 1B.
