I thought this might be something interesting to discuss:The video referred to is this one, and features a Tampa Bay 'stuck in the base of the wall' play in which a Blue Jays outfielder elects to play the ball, and a Kansas City 'stuck in the base of the wall' play in which an Orioles outfielder elects to request time instead. Joe West's crew is in Tampa Bay (3B: Paul Schrieber), Tim Welke's crew is in Kansas City (2B: Tim Welke). Yes, the Blue Jays-Rays contest this play occurred in is the same Blue Jays-Rays contest that saw Ejections: Joe West (2) and Ejections: Chad Fairchild (1, 2).
Really not sure what the correct call would be- it seems odd that the fielder would have the option to play it or call it a double??
