He didn't go outside the lane, so this is legal & is safe at 1st. But good call Ed on saying PU would have better angle to make the call with U1 being screened.

Great conversation! If you were working the bases and the runner backed up, wouldn't you love it if the plate guy (as Ed stated) patted his chest to signal you as he moved to get a better angle to see the tag? Also, IF you judged this runner as leaving the "base path", wouldn't you want to immediately call him out, give a "shove to the side" signal (same as a player who has pulled his foot) and bark, "he's out, out of the base path" verbalized. This would signal the players as to what just occurred....

Runner didn't move out of lane or abandon his effort. The fielder and runner were both moving away from base ump who was screened. Plate man signals partner he takes call.

As long as B2 did not touch or run beyond home nor leave the base path to avoid a tag, the action is legal.

He was within 3 feet of the lane...... He wasn't tagged. I don't think anything in the rule book says you can't backup. I he was SAFE. The base ump should make the call., but from a better angle.

although the runner can retreat to avoid the tag, this runner left the base path and is out

Out or safe? Use the Federation rulebook to back up your call...
Also, who should make the call on the "tag or no tag"...
