Oy vey.

I have been wrong many times over the years on tag plays.

I have missed hundreds of balls and strikes in my 15+ years.

I have never called a guy out for missing a base unless I SAW him miss it.

If you BELIEVE a guy missed a base, you call him safe.

If you are SEE him miss definitely miss the base, you call him out(assuming proper appeal).

This PU did not SEE this runner miss home plate, he BELIEVED it.
