    It was a great call. But not so ballsy when you consider you have your 9 hole batter up with, with two strikes and two outs, who couldn't make contact with the ball the entire series. Add the fact that they had a lefty on the mound and we had runners on 1st and 3rd. It would of been a missed opportunity had he not called it.

      I was sure after the freeze frame last night that it was going out. But every time I watch it it appears like it could go either way. One thing is for sure, the ball was traveling so fast that the right fielder misjudged it and got his glove up a little late. It wasn't error, just a missed opportunity to make another great play.

      The Canseco HR was not near as sharply hit and should of been easily caught.

          Did anyone notice that on the Langworthy hit the announcer said “a long drive to LEFT”. Or something to that effect but he definitely said left.

            Yes. That was Jeff who wrongly identified the field.

            This picture shows what I mentioned, all the AU guys are on the ground except the pitcher. I didn’t realize the catcher was right in the middle of the scrum.

            Dumb guy question: If runner is thrown out at home, does the 9 hole batter lead off next inning since he was never actually out? I'm assuming so, but just asking for a friend.

            Look at the replay. He bumped into the fence as he came down.

            The reason the right fielder missed it was because he ran to the fence as fast as he could and jumped as he turned around. He was split second late. The ball was on him before he could squeeze it.

            It's really hard to tell for sure with the camera angle we have. It was definitely dropping sharply and had lots of topspin on it, and he made contact with the ball about halfway into the warning track. I think it's possible it could have hit the top of the wall. That kid had a really tough play to make with the way it was dropping and most likely curving.

                None. But since some posters persist in the"camera angle", I would appreciate a critique of this analysis
                1) The camera must be at least on the ground or a little higher;
                2) The right fielder jumps up high enough to dunk a basketball, or 10 feet;
                3) The angle of the camera, then, is AT MOST, 10/300, radians (300 ft to wall);
                4) The fielder runs to the wall, turns around and jumps UP. He bumps the wall as he comes down. To say he is 3 feet from the wall is generous. Thus the "camera angle" adds to the appearance of height above the wall of of (10/300)x(3 ft) or one tenth of a foot or an inch and a quarter.
                Essentially, then, the posted picture is a reasonable portrayal of the situation. The ball will clear the wall.
                I would particularly appreciate the comments of anyone trained in photo interpretation.

                Did anyone get a shot from the grassy knoll.

                  You still can't tell the angle at which the ball was falling. Like I said, you can tell it had a good amount of topspin because of the type of hit it was. If we had a camera looking down the wall, obviously we'd know. Either way it's immaterial, because the ball went over the fence.
