Returning to third after touching and passing home plate.

  • Post
    In little league, there is a runner on third with 1 out. The batter hits a pop up to the outfield, the outfielder catches it. The runner advances to home, touches home and continues to the dugout, but does not enter the dugout and did not tag up on third. Can that runner still return to third base as long as he touches home while returning? If yes or no, please cite the rule.

      A base runner who has earned legal claim to a base may not run bases in reverse order in order to mislead fielders or create a farce of the game. A runner who violates this regulation is disqualified.
