An infield fly, under the infield fly rule, is just the same as any other fly ball except the batter runner is automatically out to remove any force outs.

I can understand a PU covering a trail runner at 3rd if the PU literally can't make it. It is only 80+ feet from A to a calling position at 3rd.

Understand and agree.
I would have a hard time thinking the runner was not hindered, impeded or confused; given the purpose of base running is to advance.

I think this is just a mistake, but an umpire said that in pool play, the FLEX also has to leave the field when the DP plays defense for someone else.

I umpire fast pitch only.

Usually, about 30 school games, although this year too many schedule conflicts dropped that to low 20's.

Yes, the USA and NFHS rules say toward home plate; but I think the intent and any interpretation we would get would call this INT.

Also, what about the interfering with an U3K rule?

Can being forced be interpreted the same as an actual attempt?

Similar:
- reaching 1st, bumps F3, stays there
- ball gets away from fielder at a base, who lands on runner

The only thing that matters is "SS runs into runner ".
R1 is "protected" between 2nd and 3rd, but no reason in the OP for any award.

As to the question of INT, nothing said about intent.
