You Make the Call
By Little League

If a batter-runner turned to the left after reaching first, is he/she out if tagged by the fielder?

The runner is out only if the umpire judges that he/she made an ATTEMPT to go to second. No place in the rules does it say that a runner must turn to the right. See Rule 7.08(c) EXCEPTION and Rule 7.10(c).
