Overslide

Sport: Baseball

An overslide in baseball is noted when a base runner is moving so quickly that they miss or lose contact with the base that they are attempting to stop on or touch.  

When completing a run or attempting a home run, a base runner must ensure that they touch each base as they pass it. 

When it comes to tagging a player out after oversliding, a batter-runner cannot be tagged out providing as soon as they overslide, they return to the base which they had overslid. However, a base runner can be tagged out when oversliding.
