Plate umpire up the first base line...

I would disagree that the runner is out of the baseline, he can not hurdle the infielder, and simply tried to avoid the contact.

playing devil's advocate............although he had good hustle......he was running the whole time while he made the call. Also, the runner could have been called out for being out of the baseline.

Good umpiring. Notice he calls fair/foul first, then tag/no tag. Partner should peak at you to see if you may have gotten blocked. Great example of slowing down mechanics. Notice at :08 base umpire is looking at the play. At :09 he is looking at plate umpire. Perfectly done.

i think he still could have gone left around the catcher. great hustle regardless... better communication between the two umpires on the very tricky tag call would have been good.

Great hustle up the line. Normally you follow the catcher around his left side and put your belt buckle on the line, but, the catcher hindered him from doing that. PU has fair/foul all the way to the front edge of the bag (until it brakes the imaginary pain of glass in front of the bag) There should also be verbal with the base umpire to communicate who sees the tag or no tag.

Comment on this video...do you like the route he took? who is responsible for calling fair/foul? how was the eye contact to make sure they didn't have a double call?
