I mean, seriously? I'm not even a baseball fan, but OUCH that is a bad call.
I'm told that the ump Angel Hernandez is well-known for being awful. It'll be interesting to see if there are any repercussions for this. One of the things that aggravates me about baseball is how reliant it is on human judgment when it comes down to balls/strikes and whether or not a player hits a base before the baseman catches the ball, etc. In a perfect world robots and sensors would determine all that. Football has the same issue with referees deciding how far a ball has traveled on a play seemingly at random at times, but baseball seems far more susceptible to human error over the course of a game.
