But you have to get on base in order to score. Why not tackle the first baseman?
If the catcher can block the plate to prevent scoring, why not play it safe and block the runner before he even gets past second?
Rather than having to round all bases to score a run, why not let a runner kick the ball through some posts for half a run?
Tackling a catcher in order to score is a completely unnecessary part of the game.
