Nyssa’s Mom, Born Fool, and Jennie’s husband got it right. I used the American League Rule Book. Number 6.08(c).

Cliff Morrow and Jennie’s husband both offered interference or obstruction. I was somewhat remiss, though. Fielder’s or catcher’s interference is in the same rule book sentence, so I should have included “fielder” along with “catcher.” Rule 10.02(a)(1)(iv)
