  Baserunner - BR Bullpen
The objective of a baserunner is to advance to the next base, until he reaches home plate and scores a run.
In this case, a baserunner must reach the next base before the ball or he is out - this is known as a force play.
If there is already an unoccupied base between him and the batter-runner, a baserunner is not forced to advance to the next base; if he still attempts to advance, he can only be put out by if a fielder applies a tag to him while he is not touching a base.

If a baserunner strays too far from the base when attempting a take-out slide, the umpire may declare the slide to be an example of illegal interference and call an extra out.

The baserunner steps off the base upon the delivery of the pitch and is still off the base when the catcher, or other fielder, throws the ball to a fielder who tags the runner while the runner is not touching a base.

The intent of the rule is to not allow the baserunners to continue to advance when a throw to first base or third base cannot be caught by the defensive player and the ball continues into foul or dead ball territory.
