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.

You still don't get it. He did see the runner miss the plate. It is possible to see something that didn't actually happen.

Back from 2003..

"'Procedurally, I didn't handle it 100 percent right,' McClelland told The Post in an exclusive interview in the umpires' room in The Stadium. "But I'm sure it hit the pole."

When asked if McClelland saw if the ball hit a fan's glove and not the foul pole, the veteran ump was adamant that he saw the ball hit the pole. Television replays showed that it hit a fan's glove and dropped on to the field."


He saw the ball hit the pole not a glove. Replays showed that it hit a glove. What he saw wasn't actually what happened.

I am not surprised that you believe that someone can SEE something that did not happened.

It happens all the time.

I've had coaches SEE tags that didn't take place. My personal favorite is a coach who SAW the ball hit the foul line when there was no foul line.

People see UFO's.

Cops see people with weapons who don't have so much as a nail file.

It happens.

Depending on how it is used, a nail file can be a weapon. When I was on the job, I had an old lady try to stab me in the chest with a knitting needle (thank goodness for my vest).
