Rule 2 – Section 25 – OVERRUNNING OR OVERSLIDING
2-25-1 Overrunning or over-sliding is the act of a runner who, after touching the base to which he is advancing, allows his momentum to carry him past the base so that he loses contact with it.
For the right to overrun first base, see 8-2-6. For cases where a runner is not credited with a stolen base or a batter with an extra base hit, see 2-5-3, 9-3-3, and 9-4-1. If a force is involved, 2-29-3 states that touching a base ends a force.
