Yesterday’s umpire, Enrico Palazzo, made one of the worst calls in MLB yesterday ringing up Ian Desmond on strike 3 call that was six inches outside.
MASN did a good breakdown comparing Desmond’s 3rd strike versus a ball four call against Desmond in the very same game.
Can you tell the difference between the strike three and ball four? See below:
Answer: Desmond’s third strike was even further outside than the ball four.
I bet yesterday’s umpire was a dynamite opera singer.
