While I don't completely agree you present a very sensible argument. Well said. No doubt it was just incompetence at it's finest but many in the heat of the moment, with their emotions fully engaged won't view it like that. As I said before the fans actions can't be condoned but I myself can understand it. It was a pretty shady looking call the way it unfolded and was called so late in the play. The whole thing could have been handled better by both sides.

You are 100% bang on about the Braves only having to blame themselves in the long run though. Those were some nasty errors being made out there.

The umpire called him out before the ball even hit the ground. The umpire should have admitted he was wrong. He knew he was wrong.

And how is Joe Torre in charge of anything? He is the Vice president of baseball operations with the final say? Were in trouble.

I see your point. But umpires usually call the infield fly rule instantly. This call was made at the last second. And the ball was no where near the infield.

Omgomgomgomgomg youre a friggin idiot!!!!! So if your kids teacher at school makes a mistake your advice is to start throwing garbage at the teacher? Hey we cant let "cheating" be tolerated right?

And people wonder how kids grow up acting the way they do, idiot parents like this guy encourage it!!!!! I swear some of the idiots on this site
The fans that threw things onto the field felt they had been cheated in that moment. What I think is irrelevant and I don't know what's in that umps head, I was simply providing another side.

You also must have missed the part where I said I don't condone the fans actions but I can understand them. I've never thrown anything onto a field at a game in protest and never would, but I can understand their anger in the moment and how their emotions could get the better of them.

As for using the analogy of some angry, drunk adults throwing stuff onto a field in protest after feeling they got cheated out of their hard earned money; With kids in a classroom throwing things at their teacher. Seriously???? Come on man!

To me, The ball was dropped mostly due to the rowdy crowd. Even Matt Holliday mentioned he had trouble communicating with his short stop because it was so loud in there.  I guess it would have been a cheap hit, but a hit is a hit and the crowd is a reason home field teams are the favorite. Just a horrible call.

still.. the call was made once, and not until, the shortstop called for it and it looked clear that he was camped under it which is normal procedure for an umpire.

I wonder if anyone is upset at the amount of time they wasted on this thread debating a correct call by the official....

read the rules, it was absolutly the right call. Hell, the left fielder could've been camped under it and they still could've called infield fly. The Braves lost that game on their own. People are mad because they made a ridiculously bad bet on a spread that was inflated thru the roof. If you didn't take the value on the Cards you deservewd to lose, and that infield fly had nothing to do with it.
