In last night's MFY-LAAAAA game, Adam Kennedy made a relatively weak hit up the right field line. But he got a triple out of it: even though relay throw easily beat him to the 3rd, and A-Rod was ready to apply the tag, he kicked it out of A-Rod's glove and it went flying up. No one was backing A-Rod up, but luckily for them it only bounced a couple feet away, and A-Rod walked over and picked it up. My question is: what if it had hit the third base coach? I assume if the coach deliberately prevented it from, say, dribbling into left field, they'd be penalized, but what's the penalty? And what if it wasn't so deliberate?
