Game tied in the bottom of the 9th. Two guys on base for Florida, Gabby Sanchez hits a bouncing ball down the 3rd base line. It is in the air as it passes 3rd base and although it looked like it was still fair, the umpire ruled it foul.
Here's the catch though, the balls next bounce was fair by a few inches. It was clearly a blown call, but this is what the umpire said about it after the game...
"I was right on top of it, and it was wide of the bag," he said. "What the ball did when it went past me is irrelevant. ... I understand that's the winning run, but in my opinion it was foul."
I believe what he's trying to say is that the ball took the same trajectory as the bullet that hit Governor Connelly and the loogy that hit Kramer.
