infield fly not a terrible call really

Wtf happened at 1:30 that over turned that call?

There are no "bad calls", just calls. These are judgment calls. Right or wrong after replay, review, whatever, this is the human aspect of the game. Umpires are human, with human senses. The will not always get it right, but if in their judgement they make a call, accept it & move on. Or you're gone!

You know I have wondered since the 90s even why they still have umps in any game to make official calls. They are always under review anyway. Video proof is better than any call an ump can make. Just saying they have had instant replays for how long now?

A lot of these umps are on the take, no doubt

Am I the only one that thinks that he wasnt gonna catch it anyway on the fan interference. I mean, by the time the fan touched it the fielder hadnt even jumped. It would have hit off the wall and Jeter getsa double anyway

We can review plays now you fucking dirty umpires.
Captain Nwalps (13 days ago)
Gee if only there was some technology we could use to rewatch plays and make sure the play was called right. I guess that’s just a dream.
Art Gutierrez (13 days ago)
Criminal charges should be filed for the ump that called that first pitch a strike. It's so blatantly wrong, that it's suspect.
Matt O (13 days ago)
U ended video on weird note. That's an incredibly close call to make. Not really a blown, obvious call like rest.
Matt O (13 days ago)
1:42 did he even touch home plate??!?

Announcers should have to take a Rules test. As a retired minor league and NCAA Division I umpire I assure you that they got it right.

Why couldn’t they go to replay on the no hitter ?

I would not be so calm if David Ortiz was screaming in my face. That ump made a crappy call but he has guts

I've never understood how an umpire who's lined up on the inside of the plate can possibly make a call from a pitch on the outside of the plate.
Dustin Crisci (27 days ago)
First Call (0:00) - I wish viewers could see the box, but it looked like ball four to me. Its break was getting lower and more outside, but it depends on where it ended up right when it hit the catchers glove. The umpire also took a while to call it. BAD Second Call (0:16) - It was playable for the shortstop AND left fielder, shortstop had to be at least 15-20 feet off the infield dirt, didn't look like they had an intent to drop the ball and turn a double play, so that isn't right. Plus it's the playoffs with an extra umpire. Cmon. BAD Third Call (0:55) - He was obviously still showing bunt, the up close replay and freeze shows. Not much to say on this one. BAD Fourth Call (1:22) - I watched a separate video on this, apparently the catcher broke an interference rule, but I don't see how he could have been doing so. They could say he's blocking the plate, but I didn't think he was doing that enough. The throw beat the runner by a lot, so as long as the catcher doesn't miss the tag (which he didn't) he should be out. BAD Fifth Call (2:06) - I don't think that type of play is reviewable, even today. It did look like he was pulled off the bag though. One could argue that his momentum was going off the bag anyway but the fielder pulled him off anyhow. The umpires should have overturned this. BAD Sixth Call (2:39) - It obviously goes off his foot. Another strange play, that I don't think can be reviewed today. But it obviously goes off his foot. Although there wasn't replay, there are four umpires there who ALL didn't see it go off his foot. Seriously... BAD Seventh Call (3:03) - From the side view it looked that the runner never hit the grass, which means he's not out of the baseline, and the fielder clearly missed the tag, so that shouldn't be a double play. One might argue the ball hit the runner on the hit before it got to the fielder, but it clearly didn't there either. Oh, a Yankees-Red Sox blown call is the best. BAD Eighth Call (3:32) - Like the first call, I wish viewers could see the box. It looked like ball two to me. Its break was getting lower and more outside as well, and once again, it depends on where it ended up right when it hit the catchers glove. Damn, Joe Girardi got his money's worth. As a Yankees fan, I like to see that. He had a nice 10 years. And if that umpire had missed calls in the same game before, that gives Girardi even more of a reason. BAD Ninth Call (4:33) - First baseman clearly off the base, umpire right there, replay shows it, nothing else really to say. BAD Tenth Call (5:06) - That is obviously bad. The pitchers foot got on the base before the runner. And that play ruined the pitcher's perfect game with two outs in the ninth inning. But everyone makes mistakes, and I like how Jim Joyce admitted to his blown call afterwards. Still a bad call and a disappointment, and I hated Jim Joyce in the moment. BAD Eleventh Call (5:45) - It looked as if he was out. Foot on the base from the first baseman, and even though the throw was bad, the first baseman still got it. One could argue that there was interference because the runner went flying, but it looked like he tripped on the bag trying to beat the throw (which he didn't). So I don't think that was the right call. BAD Twelfth Call (5:59) - It's actually pretty close, and the Angels shouldn't have assumed it didn't hit the ground and go straight to the dugout. I like the heads up play by the hitter running to first as well. Keep in mind the umpire had an opposite direction view of it as well. To me it looked like the ball didn't hit the ground, but because of everything going on and how close it was, I'll say it wasn't completely bad. Like 50-60% bad. Thirteenth Call (6:54) - Announcers pretty much took the words right out of me. Fair ball, off tip of glove and then lands fair. There are extra umps in the playoffs how you you miss that one. BAD Fourteenth Call (7:35) - The Jeffery Mayer incident is one of the first blown calls I ever watched and once again with extra playoff umps how is this one missed. Mayer clearly reached over the wall to catch it. Should be no homer, although I'll take it as a yankees fan. BAD Fifteenth Call (8:10) - Another one for the Yankees. This time with a strike/ball call we do have the box, and the first pitch is in the box, and it's breaking low and away once again. But because of the box and what I see, I'll say it's a strike, so ump got that one right. The second pitch is where he should have walked. That pitch was low according to the box and my eyes and David didn't even swing. Wow. But again, as a Yankees fan, I will take this. Yankees got so many their way in this video. I'll say this is 75% bad.  Sixteenth Call (9:07) - This one is very close. I personally think he's safe. It doesn't matter if the throw beats the runner by a mile, the catcher still has to tag the runner. It was close, but I'm saying he didn't. It looked like he just swept air. Cmon Pirates bias announcers, say something about that. This could go either way though. Another consider the game was in the 19th inning, 7 hours long, umpires wanted to wrap things up. But that shouldn't play a role. I'm saying this call was a good one though.  Seventeenth Call (10:04) - Another one that goes in favor of the Yankees that I'll take. But Cano and Posada are clearly off of 3rd base when they are tagged by the catcher, Posada could even be ruled out of the baseline. There is also the concept of Cano passing Posada on the base paths, but I don't think that happened. Still, they are both out. BAD Eighteenth Call (10:46) - I think that's too much of a bang bang play to be considered bad, but I'll say it is because replay shows he's out. It's like 90% bad. Personally, that's one of the most bang bang plays at first I've ever see. Wow, what a video.

Ben Donaghy (28 days ago)
What happened at 150? Why was it overturned?
Jivan Scarano (20 days ago)
The runner wasn't able to touch home plate, because the catcher obstructed him without the ball, so he was awarded home plate due to obstruction
BJ Stone (29 days ago)
Every infielder who has ever played the game is taught to apply the tag and hold on to it until the play is over. Ron Gant's momentum took him off the bag, Hrbek's fundamentals were perfect. And here is how you KNOW it was a good call: Tim McCarver thinks it was a bad one. That's all you need to know. Poor NL homer Timmy didn't get things his way and said on TV it was a bad call. It was not.
wingmanalive (30 days ago)
You can call it corrupt but sometimes it's just a bad call. They HAVE to stick to their decision or it shows their incompetency. Kinda like getting married in the 70's. Today every marriage goes through instant replay.

How is it that the Yankees are the beneficiary of so many shitty calls? I smell fix.
Nate Peterson (1 month ago)
If you consider the Infield Fly play to be a bad call simply because "the ball was in the outfield, not the infield," you don't know the rules. If you want to argue that the ball couldn't be caught with "ordinary effort" by the fielder, and that's why the call was wrong, that's at least somewhat reasonable.

Infield fly rule in the outfield
Nate Peterson (1 month ago)
Infield fly only relies on an infielder's ability to catch the ball with ordinary effort. It doesn't actually matter where the ball is hit, other than it having to be a fair fly ball.

Umpires abuse their power they can yell curse and stare down a players & coaches which is perfectly ok. But the players and and coaches do it they get ejected and fined. I'm not a MLB fan by no means but come on please tell me they are held accountable. the umpires

MrSimmies (2 months ago)
Most MLB umpires are straight up dog shit. That left field umpire which they use in all-star and playoff games was only 20 feet away and still couldn't see that it was fair. Jim Joyce's blown call at first screwed that young Tigers pitcher out of a perfect game!!! That was the final out of the ninth inning. But the biggest joke of an ump is Crawford That arrogant buffoon was on Bryant Dumbo's HBO show a few years back on an episode examining the use of a computer to call balls and strikes. He actually said MLB doesn't need it because he has seen home-plate umps call perfect games. I am still laughing at that. Do you know that more than half of calls that managers challenge are overturned!!!???? And those are gimmie calls that Stevie Wonder gets right. And I recently read that balls and strikes are correctly called only 89% of the time. They flat out suck!

bigchief2472000 (3 months ago)
1:31 The catcher has possession of the ball and the runner is approximately 10 ft from the plate. He definitely didn't impede the runner from getting to the plate before he had possession of the ball. Clearly not a violation of 7.13.

Tis is why EVERY call made by an umpire should be able to be reviewed. I know it will extend the game, but as a player, Id prefer a fairly called game vs. getting it over quicker.

For the life of me i've never understood how Galarraga finished that game. I would have gotten thrown out. I honestly think I might have attacked him. You know how many perfect games have been thrown? 210'000 plus games played, 23 perfect ones. 23. I actually end up in tears if I talk about this moment with someone in real life because it bothers me so much that he doesn't have that on his record. At least we all know...

Theres a LOT of MLB umpires who cant call balls and strikes. These dumb-ass attention-starved umpires would much rather be demonstrative and show-off their YERRR...OUTTTT!!! than make the correct call. Managers should go off on them much more than they do ---

The fix was in in 1985. Gamblers must have paid the umps off to make sure the Royals won the WS. The umps gave the Royals the win over Toronto and then they really, really cheated the Cards. The most illegitimate World Series since the 1919. Most of the calls in this video are inexcusable and the umps who made them were either on the take or incompetent, and either way they should be fired.

The Gallaraga/Jim Joyce call still haunts me to this day. A perfect game taken away and not overturned by Selig even though Joyce admitted to it. Awful.
