That could be one of my top 3 worst mlb baseball calls right there. ******* horrible. The ball was 70 ft into the outfield. And you called it a split second before the ball hit the ground. When the SS is even with you ump... it's not IFR.
That is freaking terrible.
And makes an excellent point as to why the one game series is terrible when you play 162 a year. That and Atlanta is the best defensive team in the league and are having a fluke error filled night. They beat the Cards 5 out of 6 this year and are lined up to be knocked out of the playoffs with a bad call and a bad night! HORRIBLE!

Did Kozma back off because he heard the infield fly and thought it was Holliday? Umpire yelling infield fly could have contributed to the error. It was a bad cal, but Braves fans are acting disgraceful.
They call it if the infielder has a play. Not a crazy bad call, but its iffy at best.
No, it was an extremely crazy bad call. The whole purpose of the infield fly rule is to prevent an infielder from intentionally dropping a pop fly in order to turn a double play. The shortstop was chasing that pop up the entire time it was in the air, more than a third of the way into the outfield. How was he going to turn a double play or get lead runners with how that dropped? In fact, the runners at second and third were easily safe. This was a VERY bad call, one that may cost the Braves an extended post season.
By the way, this game is officially under protest.
