Potential Slide rule clarification:  

Slide rule/hurdles/jumps —It is the responsibility of the runner to avoid contact at home plate. If contact is initiated by the runner, it must be through the process of a slide. Malicious or Intentional contact AT ANY BASE will result in an out and the ejection of the runner from the game. This is a judgment call and is the discretion of the umpire. A slide rule WILL be enforced when an infielder is attempting to turn a double play at second base. If the runner is not close enough to merit a slide, they must peel away from the baseline. This rule is for the protection of the base runner. The base runner and batter will be called out if the runner's not sliding or not peeling away affects the defensive play. This is the umpire’s discretion. A runner may not hurdle, jump over, or leap over a fielder unless the fielder is lying prone on the ground. Penalty: The runner is out, but the ball remains live unless the umpire calls interference. Note: Jumping over a kneeling fielder is illegal.
