Discussion: Ruling on commit line

|Ruling on commit line|
Need the actual ruling:
In a co-ed league I umpire we use the same commit line and second home plat rule used Senior ball.
Question: If a runner attempting to score crosses over the commit line and decides to go back to third--crossing back over the commit line, is it an automatic out or does the defensive team have to record the out at home?
Thanks in advance

|The SSUSA rule is|
A commitment line twenty (20) feet from the scoring plate will be used. Once a runnerís foot touches the ground on or past this line, the runner is committed to advancing to the scoring plate. NOTE: If a runner recrosses the commitment line he will be declared out and the ball remains live.

|Thanks Vegas Paul. I've been playing 50+ for 2 years and have yet to see anyone pass the line and then go back. The co-ed league I ump has the same rule but it's really a low level rec league where some of the players don't know or just forget their is a rule.|
