Fielder Tagging First Base Without Stepping On It


Victor Fernandez from Miami, FL asks:

To force out a batter at first base, does a fielder have to touch the base with their foot, or can they touch the base with any part of their body?

A fielder can use any part of their body (their hand, for example) to touch first base for a force out.
