Coach assist ends the game

Prevents the tying run from scoring.

This was the correct and appropriate call.

My question is: Why didn't the 3B Umpire not grant the defense's request for Timeout?

Why should the ball be taken out of play?

From what I could see on the video, it appeared that all play had stopped, the ball was in the infield (I think it was in the possession of F1.), and most of the defensive players were attempting to return to their normal positions.

So why should you kill the ball? There are runners that can move up or be put out. Nobody seemed to want a time out to settle down the pitcher which would be a reason I would give it.

This isn't slow pitch softball. The ball remains live.

I wonder if the 3rd base umpire gives time for a batter whenever he wants it? He better not.

I have never done Little League, my son played many years ago. Is the rule with runners similar to Fastpitch softball (ie the circle)? I know they can't lead off...when(in this scenario) would the runner be locked to his base? The pitcher appeared to have the ball on the mound.

The pitcher must be on the pitcher's plate with a catcher in position in the catcher's box to receive a pitch.

That's when a runner can't leave his base. You can't freeze a play by stepping on the rubber. Not applicable in the video though. Pitcher didn't take the rubber. Interesting question if the pitcher had taken the rubber and the coach didn't see it and assisted whether we have an out. Normally an out would stand on a runner that leaves early.

Non-umpire rules question: Is the LL rule different from higher levels in terms of what contact is disallowed?

No difference at any level.

In a non-FED game is this a delayed dead ball or immediate?

If by "non-FED" you mean OBR, it's neither delayed dead not immediately dead. The assisted runner is out, and the rest of the play (advances or outs by other runners) stands.

(As a practical matter, in less-than-pro ball, you will likely have to call taime at the end to explain what happened.)

OBR 6.01 (a) It is interference by a batter or a runner when:
(8) In the judgment of the umpire, the base coach at third base, or first base, by touching or holding the runner, physically assists him in returning to or leaving third base or first base;...
PENALTY FOR INTERFERENCE: The runner is out and the ball is dead.

NFHS Rule 3 Sec 2 Art. 2 . . . No coach shall physically assist a runner during playing action.
PENALTY: The ball is dead at the end of playing action. The involved batter-runner or runner is out and any additional outs made on the play stand. Runners not put out return to bases occupied at the time of the infraction.
