(ESPN)   Remember Sam Holbrook, the ump who made the infield fly call in the NL Wild Card game? MLB has sent him home for the winter. Just kidding - he is a part of the ALCS crew   (espn.go.com) divider line 3

You are an idiot if you think that call was correct.

* was called too late to serve any purpose for the runners that it is supposed to protect
* the shortstop was not displaying ordinary effort. Even if we would have made the catch, it would still be a play that would require a respectable amount of effort. (By virtue that this was not caught kinda proves this point.)
* I suppose the shortstop was "camped out" but it would have been nice if he was actually underneath the ball
* the ball landed 1/3 the distance from the back edge of the infield dirt to the outfield fence. Common sense, alone, will tell you that it is out range of an infield fly

Very bad call by a prima donna umpire.

JPINFV: dave2198: zamboni: Hey... every bloop single to the shallow outfield should be ruled an infield fly.

Do infielders usually camp under every bloop single?

Oh... Hi. You must be one of those people who actually understands the infield fly rule. Unlike, say, the majority of the other people in this thread.


It just doesn't make sense that an infield fly rule can be called 70 feet away from the infield.
