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, Ďit is my field and I can change whatever I want toí. I asked him to call Stro and get someone over there who could explain to him that you canít 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 didnít see it good which I called him out on and his response was, ĎIím just glad we got the call rightí. 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 wouldnít 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 didnít they overturn the call that game??|
