Braves Fans Attack After The Worst Call Baseball's Seen In Years

It was a call so bad that the fans threw bottles onto the field. Did the umpires cost Atlanta their playoffs?

Posted on

On Friday night the Atlanta Braves played the St. Louis Cardinals in baseball's first ever one-game Wildcard playoff round.



The infield fly rule is in place to prevent an infielder from allowing a ball that could be caught with an "ordinary effort" to drop to allow an easier double play for the defense (runners hold at their base until a pop is caught).

This ball OBVIOUSLY required far more than an "ordinary effort" to catch. It was moderately deep into left field.

The Braves would appeal the call, but their appeal was denied.
