The Ole Ball Game

If a runner is on first and the ball is hit to second, he throws to first base first and then ball is thrown to second. Does player on second base have to tag the runner coming to second?

Jason asked: I would like to know if runner is forced or does he need to be tagged at second after player at first was put out?

Rick answered: Jason, thank you for your question.
