You make the call #4
This should be easy and this actually happened. Bases loaded no outs. Ground ball to third. Third baseman fields the ball & steps on third for one out, throws home to catcher who steps on home plate for two outs and the catcher throws to the third baseman who tags the runner going from second to third for the third out. Is this a triple play?

With what was stated, the runner advancing to 2nd is first out, the runner going from 3rd to home is second ( if crossed line as softballer said) and that's all folks. Throw to 3rd was a waste. that runner was already out.
If the runner from 3rd going home, retreats back to 3rd, it's possible....

No I agree with Stone (1 out)Never thought of this situation.I don't know how this is handled in senior ball ,but anything other than Senior ball runner going home is not out.Stepping on third eliimnated the force out.So runner would have to be tagged in order for an out. Runner going from second to third was already out after third basemen step on thirdbase.

There are two outs. The runner from 2nd going to 3rd is out on a force play. The runner headed for home plate is out on a force play once the runner passes the commit line and the throw goes to the catcher. Now watch the runner on 1st head to third in all of the commotion and is tagged out sliding into 3rd.

the only sure out you have, is the runner on 2nd going to 3rd, not enough info on the rest of the play. Did the runner on 3rd pass the line & what about the runner on 1st, was he the 1 trying to go to 3rd?

My fault. I should have been more specific--this was a mens league game.
