  7. In the first inning, the first baseman #10 is issued a warning for returning obstruction and her head coach is notified. Later in the game, #10 impedes the progress of the runner on first base legally leading off first base on the release of a 1-0 count pitch. The pitch is called a ball, and the catcher attempts a pick-off on the runner at first base where #10 tags the runner out.10
  8. With runners on first base and second base, no outs, the batter grounds to the first baseman who immediately steps on first base for the force out then throws to the third baseman. The runner from second base gets caught in a rundown between second base and third base as the runner from first base advances to second base and is standing on second base. The second baseman is blocking second base without possession of the ball and the umpire rules obstruction as the runner from second base attempts to dive back into second base where she is tagged before reaching it.10

The plate umpire interferes with the catcher’s attempt to throw the runner from first base out at second base. The runner from first base stops running and the shortstop, who caught the thrown ball, begins to chase the runner from first base back towards first base. The runner at third base breaks for home.10
