The pitcher steps off with his pivot foot, turns and makes a pick off attempt to first base that bounces away from the first baseman toward dead ball territory. As the first base coach is yelling for the runner on first to run, the first baseman gets up and scrambles to retrieve the ball in an attempt to get to it before it trickles out of play, but he gets tangled up with the base coach, who is trying to avoid being run over by the first baseman. As a result, the first baseman reaches the ball just after R1 has reached second base and after the ball entered dead ball territory.
- The base ump rules interference on the base coach and calls out R1
- The base ump rules interference on the base coach and returns R1 to first and the batter is out.
- The base ump awards R1 second base only, because had the base coach not gotten in the way, the runner would have only reached second and the first baseman would have reached the ball before it went out of play.
- The base ump awards R1 third base on the failed pick-off attempt because the ball went out of play.
