NFHS 8-4-2b2, 8-4-2d/OBR no rule

A runner cannot jump over a fielder, unless the fielder is lying down or the runner jumps over the fielder’s outstretched arm. This is rule seeks to protect the fielder from injury. If the runner jumps over the fielder, he is out. The ball stays in play. The ball would be dead if the runner also committed interference.

[OBR has no such rule and does not mention that such action is legal.]
