You have to understand what "Base Line" means.  It is the straight line from where a runner is in relationship to the next base he is trying to get to.  So, if he rounded hard around third and was 10-12 feet into foul territory (which is typical), the catcher standing on the foul line would not constitute obstruction.  

 

But, I didn't see the play, so the above might be moot. 

He wasn't rounding the bag. He was on third and Sappelt hit a grounder to the pitcher.

 

Wait, then who sent him home?  Were the bases loaded?  I did not see the play.  So can someone fill me in here?

He was told to go on contact, so he did.

Enough said there.  Thanks.

Phil is right, Lake was ordered to run on contact.  It was just unfortunate that it went to the pitcher and it was a great play for him to get crappelt to 2b.  Lake did all that he could other than jump over the catcher in order to avoid being tagged out
