*Rule 6.01(i)(1) [formerly Rule 7.13] states: "A runner attempting to score may not deviate from his direct pathway to the plate in order to initiate contact with the catcher (or other player covering home plate), or otherwise initiate an avoidable collision."
*Rule 6.01(i)(I) Comment states: "A slide shall be deemed appropriate, in the case of a feet first slide, if the runner’s buttocks and legs should hit the ground before contact with the catcher."
*Rule 6.01(j) states: "If a runner does not engage in a bona fide slide, and initiates (or attempts to make) contact with the fielder for the purpose of break- ing up a double play, he should be called for interference under this Rule 6.01." A bona fide slide occurs when all four of these criteria are met:
* > Begins his slide (makes contact with the ground) before reaching the base; (YES)
* > Is able and attempts to reach the base with his hand or foot; (YES)
* > Is able and attempts to remain on the base (except home plate); (N/A [Home Plate Exemption])
* > Slides within base's reach without changing pathway for the purpose of initiating contact. (YES)
