FPSR Wipes the Game Winning Run and We Head to Extras

So U2 drifted to see the open glove side of the pivot, taking away from a good angle on the illegal (IMHO) slide. i would like to think I would have seen it but can we allow U1 to call this where i don't call it and we don't have replay or do we have to conference?

I think it's iffy if this is FPSR--the slide was wide, but it's debatable as to its effects.

I'm getting this for the intentional interference. 

Also, I don't like the idea of U1 getting this until a conference. If someone other than the umpire on top of the play has something that will change the call, I would like all inputs to be considered and synthesized.

I’m with @Matt on the intentional INT (left hand and arm reaching to induce contact), but I don’t think a U1 sees this at game speed. It’s not something he’s anticipating, as he’s watching for a “true throw” from a middle infielder, prompting him follow the throw to F3 and the arrival of BR at 1B. Maybe he sees something, @Jimurray, but he has less than a second to process it, and can’t let it distract him from his primary component responsibility of the play. 

Maybe an astute PU sees it, but it’s a hard sell at 125 feet away, and doubtful when he has R3 touching the plate AtST.

No one can get this except U2 and replay.  SO, in the games we do without replay, ... ;)


I think it is possible for a post season division 1 umpire to see a hand to the groin area on a slide into 2B working with ≥ to four umpires. 

If not for replay, I think this would've been a pretty big miss.
