No.  Third baseman has priority over any popup in the infield.

Interesting. Assumed it was the same as the outfield where CF has priority.

It is.  The third baseman has priority.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

I meant priority going toward the middle of the field.

Not on the infield.  Third baseman has priority on any ball on the infield...groundball or a popup.

It's the assumption that the SS is playing deeper in the hole field, so 3B has the easier route.

You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Exactly.  Obviously the third baseman can't get to everything, but he has priority on what he reasonably can.

Not sure that would have been gone, but a huge play nonetheless.
