·      Players can advance bases until play is called dead by calling time in the pitcher’s circle or calling time out DIRECTLY in front of the LEAD runner. If time is called in the pitcher’s circle, then runners must return or advance based on their position when called in conjunction with the “go back” line. If time is called in front of the lead runner, then any trailing runners may continue to advance until stopped by an occupied base.
