    I think they missed that one. Foul ball as it lands behind the plate. Smart play though.

    If it were Jeter and the yankees, it would be a hit by pitch.


    Where have I seen that happen before? Hmmmm

    I've always found this answer interesting. This is the job of umpires, to ge calls right. If any one of us made a bad decision at work, especially one that cost us or a supervisor money, no one would say that it was human error. I love it when it comes to baseball umpires.

    You'd think weather forecasters would have a high turn over rate

    That is a common statement about weather forecasters.

    I have read comments defending them that they are right about their weather predictions about 98% of the time.
    Well....that is probably true.....but then again, most of us can predict the weather to about a 90% accuracy without any Doppler 5 zillion equipment.

    From MLB: “After review and discussion with the umpire, we have determined that the call itself of a fair ball was correct. However, while making the call, there was an incorrect mechanic, which appeared to confuse San Diego’s base runners. At no time did the umpire verbally kill the play on the field. After reviewing the entire situation following the game, the umpire realizes his hands were in an exaggerated upward appearance similar to a call that would indicate a dead ball. While we all agree that it was a fair ball that did not hit the batter, the umpire recognizes that the proper mechanic was not executed as he tried to avoid the catcher.”
