Ours was at 1B. Nobody on, ground ball, umpire in perfect position. YES he blew the call but that is the human element in the game. Other team told the ump to ask for help. No possible way plate umpire had a better view. Plate umpire overturned it because according to him, ‘it is my field and I can change whatever I want to’. I asked him to call Stro and get someone over there who could explain to him that you can’t overturn that call. He supposedly called the UIC and he said you could. Not what Slim said when I asked. Slim also said the field ump asked for help because he didn’t see it good which I called him out on and his response was, ‘I’m just glad we got the call right’. I was over it 2 minutes after it happened. Never said a bad word to the ump after the game, they have a tough job dealing with us and I wouldn’t want it! Lol. For the most part we have good umpires usually. And I honestly feel they let AP go that far because they knew they missed that call and felt they deserved it. And if that is/was the case, why didn’t they overturn the call that game??
