Scoring
Situation 1 out runners on first and third. Batter hits a fly ball to the outfield which is caught. Runnier on third tags up and crosses the scoring line sucessfully, The runner at first think there was 2 outs when the ball is hit does not tag up at frist base. The ball comes back to the infield and directly to first base at this time there are 3 outs the runner on third crossed the scoring line before the 3RD out is made DOES THIS RUN COUNT?

Run does not count. Guy on first did not tag up therefore he is forced out at first which cancels out the run.

This is not a force play. It is a live ball appeal. If the runner crossed the scoring line before the 3rd out was recorded, the run counts.

Texas Transplant is correct, a force play involves only a runner forced to advance because another runner has taken the base the runner was on. Not the case on a fly out.

Texas Trans I stand corrected. The run for sure counts as long as he crosses the plate before the ball gets to 1st base. Thanks for the needed help!
