Imo, it was blatant interfernce. The ball was clearly catchable and the fans went over the wall to catch it.

If they win 1-0, then win the series in 7 games... Look back to this game.

The ball was clearly catch able? :laugh:

There was no way in hell he was catching that, the fat kid next to the Jeter jersey kid hit Cruz's glove after the ball went in the seats and that is what Cruz felt and that is why he jumped around and screamed

He was probably a foot away from it, who knew if he could have gotten to it? The fan didn't give him a chance.

It was not interference, however it was close enough and hte umpire was far enough away that there should have been replay. There's simply no way he got a good enough look. He lucked out in getting the call right.

if a fan even touches you when you are trying to catch a ball in fair territory it should be interference. they basically pushed his glove out of the way. :facepalm:

Should've been reviewed, but the ball wasn't catchable. It was well over the wall and out of reach of the glove.

Should've been reviewed, but the ball wasn't catchable. It was well over the wall and out of reach of the glove.It hit the VERY edge of the wall, and his glove would have been at least a foot higher than that.

That fat guy commited interference, even if the ball wasn't catchable. Theres no way the umpire could make 100% certain that the call was right. It should have been reviewed.

IF the hands weren't hanging over the wall (which they shouldnt be) then Cruz glove could have been a few inches higher, giving him a chance to catch it.

Explain what the very edge means? I'd love to hear that explanation.

The fan interfered but remember it was ruled a HR. A clear review would have to change it, there is nothing clear about the replay to prove that Cruz would've caught the ball. So...it's in the past now, forget about it.

That's baseball? No. That's interference. There's a 3 foot slab of concrete separating the wall from the fans. Fans arms were clearly over the padded part of the wall. Try explaining how in the world that's NOT interference.

What do you mean that wasn't catchable? If that white trash loser with his sideways hat didn't push Cruz's glove down it would have at least hit Cruz's glove.

If a ball breaks the plane of the wall then the fans are allowed to try to catch it. The Cano homer landed on the concrete portion at the top of the wall, beyond the padded portion. It was definitely closer to the fans than it was to the field (I'm watching the replay on my TV).

I don't think Cruz timed the jump well enough or had enough height to make a play on the ball anyways though. It was at least a foot above his glove before the fans even touched him.

I don't like the Yankees, and those fans were acting like morons, but it wasn't interference. It's a shame we always see the idiot Yankee fans and not reasonable ones.

That fat guy interfered once the ball was already in the stands....So no interference on the play.

It wasn't catchable. That means...couldn't have been caught. Simple phrase actually, used very often in the game of baseball.

The ball was already in the stands when Cruz tried to make a play at it, it went OVER the fence(where the crowd have a right to make the play). The ball was never at any point on the field of play(where the fielder has the right to call interference):

Cruz was not going to catch the ball. It was close, but he was not catching it. However, that is not for us to determine. What needs to be determined is whether or not he has a chance to catch the ball.

At the end of the day, it needs to be reviewed, but the call of a HR was fine.

I just find it dumb that fans can have an effect on the on-the-field play.

lavell12
10-19-2010, 10:01 PM
i believe the rule is that if the fan interfers. in fair play then it is interfernece. Yes the ball was in the stands but the fans reached over in the field of play and interfered.

lavell12
10-19-2010, 10:06 PM
i think the rule should be based on the home versus road team. if the road team is trying to catch it should be an out and if the home team is interfered with it should be a homerun.

Yes, penalize one team and not the other because of fans. Not because of their own play, but because of people who are not playing in the game.

That is ridiculous. Especially considering that not all fans are fans of the home team.

Just saw that Indians-Yanks fan interference replay on ESPN, boy there would be holes in the wall if that happened here. Esp after the way the refs dogged the cowboys sunday.

The Cano home run was in the seats so whatever, let it go.

gnomenamedgnorm
10-20-2010, 01:20 AM
May or may not have been catchable. I do not think it was interference however. Definitely should have been reviewed as many others have already said at the very least to eject fat boy on the far left for slapping NC's glove. Also, the umpire pretty much lost all credibility when he called Berkman's hit a HR when it was clearly foul.

Fact is you play on and texas did just that. They played, played well and now NYs back is against the wall.

I think the ball would have been a homerun, but the fans didnt allow Cruz a shot to rob it which I think he could have possibly done but its not 100% that he would of.

The fans did interefere because Cruz wasn't able to get his glove up cuz so many fans were trying to get their hands on the ball.

Regardless it doesn't matter because the Ranger's ended up donkey stomping the yankees anyways. :D

As a Mets fan and a fan of Josh Hamilton as a player, Im am pleased with what i watched last night.

When the ball is clearly in the seats (as it was with Gardner's play) the fan can interfere all he wants. There really was no dispute on that play.

As for the homer...

1) To me it is clear that the ball was not going to find a glove. I don't believe interference should have been called.

2) It is ******** that the umps didn't review the call.

3) That fan is a dick.

I loved the part where the one guy flipped off Cruz and then later in the game he blasted one in the second deck.

That shot was clearly non-reviewable by the way.

Cano's homer was definitely close. I don't care that they didn't review it, but I would have liked to see that same loser flip off Cruz outside a ball game. Cruz is a large man.
