commit line between third and home
I'm not sure how universal this rule is but we have a committ line half way between third and home. If you go past the line you have to go home or you are out.

My question is if you go past the line because you think a fly ball is going to drop in can you come back to third and tag up and proceed home again?

Commit line is supposed to be 20 feet from home plate. Once you cross it you can't go back & I'm pretty sure you can not be tagged out in that zone either.

Forgot to add, if you do cross back (try to go back to 3rd base) over in most places your automatically out.

In the Summit's rules comparison, it looks like 20 feet in all but SSWS which shows 32 feet. The rules comparison is at http://www.softballrating.com/rules.php and is only current as of January 2006.

So even if you have to go back because of a fly ball that was caught you are out if you crossed the commit line.
