MLB Instant Replay Review S-58: Gary Cederstrom (S-2)

Instant replay reversed 1B Umpire Gary Cederstrom's safe (trap) call in the top of the 8th inning of the Mets-Nationals game. With two out and one on, Mets batter Andrew Brown hit a 0-2 pitch from Nationals pitcher Ryan Mattheus to center fielder Denard Span, who dove in an attempt to catch Brown's sinking line drive before it hit the ground. Upon instant replay review as the result of a challenge by Nationals Manager Matt Williams, Cederstrom's ruling that Span trapped the fly ball was overturned, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Nationals were leading, 6-3. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 7-3.

This is Gary Cederstrom (38)'s 2nd instant replay challenge/review of Spring Training.
