Infield Fly in Wild Card Game

Thoughts? I personally have no problem with the call.

Apparently, the fans of Atalanta do.

It's been awhile since seen fans at a professional sports event throw debris onto the field in response to a call.

Added clip of play:

Shouldn't the runners have "tagged up" after 1st contact? Aren't they vulnerable to an appeal?

The ball wasn't caught.

Where did all the Mets fans come from? It makes no sense for them to be in Atlanta throwing garbage on the field.

Does not look like one to me.

The rule is supposed to protect the offense from easy double plays, no chance of that here.

#1 Could the crew chief over-rule the Ump who called it an IFF. #2 shouldn't they have resolved it then and there rather than playing- since playing it out tomorrow if upheld is rather remote. Also let's face it- you can't protest a judgement call.

#2 It was resolved, protest was logged and they kept playing.

MLB will not overturn a judgment call.

This is a problem with postseason baseball. Umpires, who are not stationed in the outfield all year long, are in the outfield in the postseason and are not just used to it, and their depth perception changes.

Also add in announcers who are only partially correct and the people watching on TV get bent out of shape too.

U3 called it from 3rd base. I can easily see it both ends of the stick on this one. Take your pick. The protest is a no-brainer denial.

U3 calls it after Holbrook and he's just reacting to what he'd done. The ball is already clearly going to fall when he puts his arm up.
