OBR has conflicting statements about the "tie" situation anyway. In 605(j) he or first base is tagged "before" he touches first base. A "tie" would not constitute "before", and therefor the runner would be safe in a "tie" situation. In 708(e) he fails to reach the base "before" a fielder tags him or the base. Once again a "tie" would not be "before" and therefor the runner would be out in a "tie" situation. The word "clearly" in not in OBR. The term used is "before".

Personally, I like to watch 708(e) applied.

Maybe D1 on down should look into wood bats again to help speed up slow and high scoring games rather than making "everyone" a potential Hank Aaron or Babe Ruth.
