Can the offense ask for an appeal? (ie he runs to first and beats the throw before an appeal, this would then favor the offense to ask for appeal)
The umpire will rule whether or not the pitch was caught. He does this by either seeing it with his own eyes or looking for a signal from his partner. He then either declares the batter out or makes a "safe" signal if not caught.

There's no appeal by either team granted on this play.
