Tag out

Sport: Baseball

A tag out is one way in which a player can be put out during a game of baseball. Tag outs occur when a fielder touches a base runner when they are between bases or not in a safe position. 

To tag a player out, the fielder must be holding the ball and must touch the runner whilst they are not in a safe space or on a base. Runners also have to adhere to certain rules to ensure they aren’t automatically tagged out. For instance, a runner must only stay on the base path between bases and must touch the base to ensure a run. If the runner doesn’t touch a base, they are vulnerable to being tagged out and can also have their run discounted.
