Default Braves vs Pirates close call...you be the judge


This was a 19 inning baseball game (yes NINETEEN innings). runners on second and third, bottom of the 19th inning; tied 3-3; 2 outs. If the braves score, they win.

Batter hits a grounder to third, runner advances and "looks" like he is tagged out at home which would have cause the game to go another inning. Ump calls him safe.

From the camera behind the catcher and runner, it clearly looks like the runner is out. but at the 1:28 mark, it seems as though the glove misses the runners leg.

you be the judge

the runner is out. and doesn't the runner touch the catcher himself, thus making him out also?

no, the runner has to be tagged. just holding the ball does not make the whole players body "hot". The glove holding the ball or a hand holding the ball has to touch the runner

I voted out, but upon further looking of the vid, it looks like the glove was just a cnut hair above the pants. Its hard to tell from that angle. The emprier was there and had the best veiw. He may have been safe

The pants rippling could have been caused by them hitting the ground or the sudden stop.

I would like to believe the ump got the call right. I have seen before where it looks obvious that the runner was tagged at the leg and missed. With that being said, I voted "out". The announcers even commented that, "The runner never made it home" (originally of course). I think he was out.

The ump was tired and wanted to go home.He forgot the first rule of umpiring "if the ball beats the runner,You'reOUT always

Thats the worst call of the year and i have seen a lot of bad calls but that one was so off it wasn't even funny i think that ump just wanted to get home.
