Retouching After a Foul Ball


Brad from Guelph asks:

Is there any rule stating that baserunners (with a leadoff) must return and touch the base after a foul ball or time is called?

Yes! When the ball goes dead, he umpire should not put the ball back in play (call "play") before any runners on base have retouched their bases.
