Another common time play / appeal play is 1st and 3rd with 1 out. Fly ball to right or right center. The ball is caught by the outfielder for the second out. The runner at 3rd tags and scores while the throw from the outfielder catches the runner from first too far off the bag. A lot of people consider this a force play because they believe that any play that doesn’t require a tag is a force. This play is actually a live ball appeal play on the runner getting back to first. As such, if the run scores before the runner at first is tagged or before the appeal occurs, it will count. The exception to this is the play I mention above, where the appeal at first will disallow the run because of the exception made in the rules for the two out situation with a batter being put out BEFORE reaching first base.
