There is a video of the play on Twitter. The name of the page is Cowboy Baseball @OSUBaseball. The entry is listed as ICYMI: Highlights and it is about 2 ½ minutes long with your play shown twice at the end.

Here’s a description of the play written by Mark Cooper of Tulsa World.

“It culminated with an ugly collision at home plate — Kroon, the Oklahoma State shortstop, into Keizer, the Oral Roberts catcher. Keizer had to exit the game before the next batter — the final batter — could come to the plate.

“But Keizer, who was ruled not to have been blocking the plate, held the baseball. And ORU held on to a wild 6-5 win in a game that, …”

No question that's an illegal slide.  The leg and buttock was not on the ground prior to contact.  Great call.

YES. That was an absolutely great call by this umpire. I expect to see this again next year in a training video or on the test.

Agreed. It was an illegal slide and a very good call.

Was that you on the dish @sthomas13100? Looked solid if it was. But was wondering if you realize you "bounce" when you lock in?
