The coach of the defensive team wanted her out for bein gout of the basepath, but I would have been wrong to call it. remember we WANT runners to avoid the interference, so why punish them for doing what we want them to do?
Great points.
I dont think, however, if the BR is already outside the 3' line for any of the afore mentioned reasons(like Mike stated) and a fielder comes up with the ball close to said BR, you shouldnt punish the BR.

why SHOULD you? Her base path is the line between her and the base at the time the play was initiated on her. From THAT spot she has 3 feet....
