If the DC feels cheated out of an out, maybe he should have been grumbling at F2 for throwing to 1B instead of tagging the BR as she lay splayed out on the ground in the batter's box.

No, though she did go to the finest preschools! She was a pretty sharp, athletic kid, but she also had a LOT of luck on the play. Bases loaded, batter hits a pop fly and all the runners go. F5...

No choice for

If she dropped the ball and was picking it back up, wouldn't it have to be "about to retrieve?" LOL

Let me see if I have this straight. It sounds like there is a consensus that R2 made it to 2B about the same time as the throw that was dropped (OP called it a bang-bang play), and that he touched...
