What is contact play in baseball?

A contact play in baseball is a set play where a base-runner (typically on third base) begins running towards the next base (typically home plate) as soon as any contact is made. This is usually done to increase the likelihood of scoring with two outs, or where a runner would not need to tag up in the event of an out.
