We all got a good laugh!

ASA Mens 16" - R1 on 2B, R2 on 1B, 0 outs - Batter hits a ground ball to F6, who thows to F4 for the force at 2B - F4 goes to throw to 1B when R2 jumps in the air and blocks the ball into the outfield (like a basketball player getting blocking a shot)

Both teams got a good laugh (I had to laugh as well) as the offensive team was getting blown out at the time.

What is the correct call here?

I want to see if I got it right.

Intentional INT by a retored runner to prevent a double play is ...


BR OUT! (with/without laughter)

Speaking ASA, only if the BR is also the closest to home!

Oh yeah, thanks, there was an R1 who would be out, if not already home.

Good - I believe I ruled correctly then. R2 was out on the force at 2B and R1 I ruled out on the interference. BR gets 1B.

If this had been a close and/or serious game then I'm sure there would not have been much laughing as this probably cost the offense a run.
