Default Interference, yes or no?

What do you got here? U2 said it was clean. Game ended on this play.

It's tough to tell, from the three different angles, none show when and how he lifted his arms. All I see is the arm already lifted in a nonchalant fashion.

U2 said everybody throws arms up when they slide. I think I'm getting interference though. Clearly the actions of the base runner interfered with the play on BR.

I can see it go either way...But the runner was making what appeared to be a legal slide...within reach of the bag...

And as memory serves, I believe it an inherent characteristic of runners when beginning their slide to have the arms go up...So he was doing what he was supposed to be doing...INT, perhaps...But I can only imagine that U2 gave a solid statement of fact supported by the rules to support the ruling he made...

I am anxious to hear any post game reports on this one.

Aloha,
Mike

I'd call the interference. Something odd with this slide makes me see intent. Yes, arm(s) will go up when runners do a bent leg slide, but I expect the opposite hand of the tucked leg would be the one higher in the air. The slide just looked way too fishy. I think it looks even worse at real speed than when it was slowed down. I can see how it could go either way though.

Agreed...What appears odd about the slide...the arm issue or his path on the slide itself? Just curious...

I think the arm. It just seemed like he was reaching into the path of the throw. Again, I expect the arms to be up on a bent leg slide. But the wrong arm was up high. Gave me the impression he was reaching, thus intent. The slide was hard and late, but I've seen way worse on double plays.

Obvious interference. They need to add these calls to IR.

Default Re: Interference, yes or no?

The clearly intended to interfere with the fielder. He was clearly out but slid into the fielder's feet for the purpose of knocking him down. In professional baseball this was a completely common, normal and legal play. It just looked worse because it ended the game.

If this was a high school game using FED rules you have a textbook FPSR violation. But the big boys don't play that way.
