In baseball, when a runner is forced to advance to first base and a fielder catches the ball, the fielder can make a force out by touching the base with their feet when getting the ball. They can also make a force out by sliding with their feet first or diving with the ball in their glove.
However, can a fielder touch the base with their non-ball hand and make a force out, just like they can with their feet?
For reference I found this. https://baseballxgear.com/what-is-a-force-out-in-baseball
A force out will be recorded when a defender touches an unoccupied base that the runner is being forced to try to advance to while in possession of a hit ball or dropped 3rd strike before the runner reaches that base.
But the word "touches" seem very vage
