It's being referred to as the worst call in baseball. After 19 innings, the Atlanta Braves beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-3 Tuesday night. But was umpire Jerry Meals just tired? Had he simply had enough, and wanted this six-hour contest to end? Or was this simply a bad call at home plate?
Hit the jump to watch the video. This game-ending call appears to me to be even worse than the bad call made by Jim Joyce last June, when Detroit Tigers' pitcher Armando Galarraga was robbed of his perfect game.
Was he really safe? You make the call!
