important part of rule 7.13:
catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of
the runner as he is attempting to score. If, in the judgment of the Umpire, the
catcher without possession of the ball blocks the pathway of the runner, the
Umpire shall call or signal the runner safe. Notwithstanding the above, it
shall not be considered a violation of this Rule 7.13 if the catcher blocks the
pathway of the runner in order to field a throw, and the Umpire determines that
the catcher could not have fielded the ball without blocking the pathway of the
runner and that contact with the runner was unavoidable.
