This is Mike Everitt (57)'s fourth Replay Review of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is Crew Chief Bill Miller's 33rd supervised Replay Review of the 2014 Season.
*Rule 7.13(2) states, "unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score." Though Rule 7.13(1) applies to runners attempting to deviate in order to initiate contact "with the catcher (or other player covering home plate)," the defensive requirement only applies to catchers. Accordingly, Everitt's Rule 7.13 violation no-call (out) was confirmed.
This is the 618th Replay Review of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly's 22nd Replay Review of 2014.
Umpires are now 324/618 (.524 Affirmation Rate) in Replay Reviews during the 2014 MLB season.
