Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Force out or not

With man on first, shortstop fielding a ground ball, tripped & fell in his effort to force an out at second base. With the ball in his glove, he reached & touched the bag with his free hand. Referencing a first baseman who touches the bag with his foot on putouts while in possession of the ball, the runner was called out at second.
... but a runner caught between the bases trying to advance must be tagged with the ball. Anyone with complete umpire expertise, please clarify.
Thank you,
