Umpire stopping play for an injury.

At that point the plate ump calls the play dead. Coaches attend to the player and she gets a few pitches to see if she can continue.
Question: When should the play be called dead?
Our runner moving from 2nd to third was half way down the line when ball was called dead.
Catcher wasn't in position to receive a throw.

It's a judgement call by the Umpire.
In my opinion, in general, an umpire shouldn't call time until the play is relaxed/over.
No way I'm calling time for a line drive off the player's foot.
Even if the foot is fractured/broken 30 seconds isn't going to matter.

Two situations I had: (1) pitcher hit in the butt on a one hop from the batter, he was down hard and hurt pretty bad, but the play continued (All Star Sections game) [player taken out of game to recover], and (2) pitcher hit by line drive into the chest at a slight angle, umpire stopped play immediately as the player was going down to the ground (regular season).
Would the hit to the chest stop an All Star game, under the circumstances that I saw, I would hope so.
I can see the difference when to stop play.
