[from Nick Young's circular on rules interpretations] Rule 53, Section 13.--If the ball has plainly passed or been batted through a fielder, and the base runner has run fairly behind the fielder, he should not be declared out if hit by the ball. It is no longer a fair batted ball. The intent of this rule was simply to prevent the runner from obstructing the fielding of a batted ball. The umpire should be particularly careful in enforcing this rule to use judgment.
