Dixie Ponytails (12U): R1 on 3rd. 2 Outs. R1 attempts a delayed steal of home. The catcher receives the ball and blocks home. R1 slides but does not make it to the plate due to catcher blocking plate. At the tail end of slide, a flustrated R1 pushes the catcher with both hands and dislodges the ball. I immediately called the runner out, warned her and her coach that any other unsportsmanlike act would cause her to be ejected. How would this be handled in NF, ASA, NSA, etc?

Pretty much just the way you handled it, depending upon how quick the umpire's trigger was.

Agree with your call and Sam's. Cool heads always prevail.
Had same happen in the set up game of a tournament this
weekend. [game between last two undefeateds]. Only this player
[18U] got the thumb, she lowered the shoulder and tried to
gain that final yard on 4th down.....
