theres is no blocking the plate rule on infield grounders i thought.
Doesn't matter where the ball is coming from, infield or outfield. In the old days a catcher was taught to block the plate while waiting for the ball then when he gets the ball tag the runner. It was illegal then as it is now,  the difference is, in the old days it was never enforce.  The difference is, now it's enforced.  If a catcher has the ball in hand, he can block the plate and tag the runner for the out.
