Sorry I don't have the specific game(s). Here in Coal Country, PA, I get truly sucky MLB coverage, so I am stuck watching highlights on MLB TV.

Yes, I also know that umps avoid this call at all costs. Does that mean it is EVER called? Or am I being a Smitty here?

Your thoughts, august group.

A hanging foot is OK. It's only a violation if it's on the ground completely out of the box at the moment the ball is hit.
