Obstruction

Sport: Baseball

Obstruction in baseball is the act of a fielder intentionally and illegally attempting to hinder or prevent a baserunner from running. The act of obstruction can lead to various penalties which can hinder the defending team.

The only time when a fielder is legally allowed to touch or obstruct a baserunner is when they are in possession of the ball and are able to tag the base runner out.
