Its also something that will never be overturned by replay because of the subjective nature of the call. Pretty sure that isnt even reviewable in MLB

That really was an atrocious call. I really tend to side with umps being one  but I doubt that home base ump was in the proper position to make that call on the runner. 1b had no play on the ball anyway

 

The home plate umpire has one job in that scenario: and that’s to observe whether or not the runner is out of the baseline. Once the play falls apart like that, he will always rule interference. It’s textbook.

Go Stanford....want to see UConn have to fly all the way across the country and get their ass kicked.


Would UConn host the super if Texas State wins this?

His first priority is a potential play at the plate. Why you see him position himself at 1b line extended. Watching for interference was secondary.  I can say with pretty much certainty he wasn't in a  good position to see interference. To call it on that play in particular was mind blowing.

I'm not sure, but I'm guessing Texas State would host since they were the #2 seed in their region while UConn was #3.

So you have to pass the NCAA smell test to host a regional but not a super? Seems odd.

I think they sometimes do neutral sites too. To “reward” Texas St as the higher seed maybe they could play it at UT’s baseball stadium since Austin is close to campus.

That goes without saying, and when it’s apparent there will be no play at the plate (I mean, the catcher was jogging towards the play in front of him down the first base line), the umpire’s job is to watch the base runner.

 

Even Rob Vaughn said the ump got the call correct. 

 

Maryland’s pitching was toast last night. A bit more burnt than Connecticut’s. That 385 to CF and that ‘FieldTurf’ stuff really do create a pinball environment.

Yeah Im not saying he had no view. Im saying it wasnt an ideal one. I think you can say he got it right and convinve yourself thats true by the letter of the law. The problem is that play rewards a defense that wasnt going to make the play. If the runner was a foot further to the right the exact same thing happens. If the pitcher fields the ball and plants he has a better chance of getting the runner at 1b. Instead he continues to let his momentum take him towards foul territory and throws the ball with no angle directly over top of the runner.

It’s a call that could be made on basically every play. It was called here because there was a collision. The issue is that the collision didn’t happen to the left of first base, it happened on the base because the first baseman was standing directly on top of it. Either the rule needs to be changed, umps need to be told not to call it, or don’t put the base in fair territory.

I assume that the only thing replay was looking at was whether Keister had crossed home plate before the collision.

To make that call at that point in the game is ridiculous to me. Let the players decide the outcome, don’t dictate it as an umpire. The pitcher’s throw didn’t even go to the first baseman, it was closer to the second baseman backing him up.

As a side note, catchers aren’t allowed to block the plate so why are first basemen apparently allowed to block first base?

Had Alleyne ran inside the baseline and collided with the first baseman who was atop the bag? The ump might’ve ruled obstruction, in which case he’d have been awarded second base. 

 

It’s Alleyne’s fault for not running inside the baselines. Again, this is baseball 101 stuff.

I think it was a really bad call from watching the replay.  The rule isn't meant to be enforced if the batter-runner is a couple inches into fair territory immediately prior to reaching the base.  It's meant to be if their entire body is in the baseline and approaching the grass when you're only 50 feet up the line.  The runner's right foot was basically on the foul line with only a couple steps left to go.  

 

I can understand the opinion that it might be the correct letter of the law interpretation, but its still bad umpiring.  The two are absolutely not mutually exclusive.

If you watched the replay objectively and came away with a case of "bad umpiring," then that says more about your own objectivity than it does the umpire's.

Maryland has signed head coach Rob Vaughn to a contract extension through the 2027 season. Huge news for the program, as he’d been targeted for multiple high-profile openings across the country.
