ARMCHAIR UMPIRE – YOU MAKE THE CALL
Situation: Runner on First, no outs.
The hit and run play is on as the runner takes off with the pitch.
The ball is hit to the second baseman.
The runner runs out of his baseline to avoid the fielder fielding the ball.
The second baseman throws to first to retire the batter runner.
Should the runner be called out for running around the second baseman? (see below)

He is NOT out for ‘illegally’ avoiding a tag.
