Not allowed. Runner must RUN out the hit and get to first before being tagged out. The above is actually not true. according to the rules, you may slide into ANY base (including first). its just not very common due to the fact that you slow down when you slide, you therefore slow down. Because of the fact, it is a LOT faster to try and run out the hit and overun the base(which is allowed)
