MLB Replay Reviews S-12|13: T Barrett, Hoberg (S-1|1)

Instant replay affirmed 1B Umpire Ted Barrett and 3B Umpire Pat Hoberg's safe calls on consecutive plays in the top of the 9th inning of the Royals-Brewers game. With none out and none on, Royals batter Justin Maxwell hit a 0-0 pitch from Brewers pitcher Donovan Hand to shortstop Hector Gomez, deflected by third baseman Jeff Bianchi, who threw to first baseman Sean Halton as Maxwell arrived at first base. Upon instant replay review as the result of an argument by Brewers Manager Ron Roenicke and initiation by crew chief Ted Barrett, Barrett's ruling that Halton's tag did not beat Maxwell's touch of the bag was upheld, the call was correct.

Immediately thereafter, Royals batter Pedro Ciriaco hit a 0-0 pitch from Hand to third baseman Jeff Bianchi, who threw to Halton for an out. Meanwhile, baserunner R1 Maxwell attempted to advance to third base and became involved in a rundown between second and third base. As Brewers shortstop Hector Gomez attempted to field a throw and tag Maxwell, the baseball fell out of his glove and rolled directly towards third base where it was picked up Hand, covering third, who attempted to tag Maxwell as Maxwell placed his foot on third base. Upon instant replay review as the result of an argument by Roenicke and initiation by Barrett, Hoberg's ruling that Maxwell's foot stepped on third base prior to Halton applying a tag was upheld, the call was correct. At the time of the instant replay reviews, the contest was tied, 5-5. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 7-6.

Denied: Phillies Unable to Challenge Due to Power Outage

A power outage prevented a Phillies instant replay challenge Thursday as the Yankees retired Phillies batter-runner John Mayberry, Jr. attempting to stretch a double into a triple in the bottom of the 7th inning. With two out and none on, Mayberry hit a line drive off Yankees pitcher Danny Burawa to right fielder Adonis Garcia, who
Do not adjust your set: Power outage strikes Phils.
threw to shortstop Yangervis Solarte to third baseman Scott Sizemore, Mayberry ruled out at third by 3B Umpire Tom Hallion. When Phillies Manager Ryne Sandberg visited the umpires to challenge the play, Hallion crew encountered technical difficulties—replay official Phil Cuzzi attempted to view the challenged call in the TV production truck, but only saw a blank screen. Because of the power failure, no video of the Mayberry play was available to the umpires (nor to the broadcasters—the video link below contains the aftermath of the play, in question but not the play itself). In the absence of instant replay, Hallion & company relied on 2013 umpiring mechanics—Hallion, HP Umpire Mark Wegner, 1B Umpire Vic Carapazza and 2B Umpire Toby Basner conferenced and decided not to reverse Hallion's original ruling of out. Because no replays are available, the call is inconclusive. At the time of the technical glitch, the Phillies were leading, 3-2. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

The chaos even infiltrated MLB Gameday's game summary, which described the play thusly:
Play reviewed and stands as called: John Mayberry doubles (1) on a line drive to right fielder Adonis Garcia. John Mayberry out at 3rd, right fielder Adonis Garcia to shortstop Yangervis Solarte to third baseman Scott Sizemore.
Technically, the original ruling did stand—Mayberry was put out. On the other hand, the extent of "review" that took place doesn't quite fit the qualification bill for a wholesome instant replay challenge.

MLB Instant Replay Review S-07: Jim Wolf (S-1)

Instant replay confirmed 2B Umpire Jim Wolf's safe call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Rockies-Brewers game. With two out and one on, Brewers baserunner R1 Logan Schafer attempted to steal second base on a 1-1 pitch from Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino to Brewers batter Taylor Green. Upon instant replay review as the result of a challenge by Rockies Manger Walt Weiss, Wolf's ruling that Rockies shortstop Rosell Herrera failed to tag Schafer prior to Schafer sliding into second base was upheld, the call was correct. At the time of the instant replay review, the contest was tied, 2-2. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

Ellis for an originally ruled out (triple and caught attempting an inside-the-park home run). Upon instant replay review as the result of an argument by Angels Manger Mike Scioscia and initiation by crew chief Gerry Davis, Gibson's ruling that Ellis tagged Trout prior to Trout's arrival and that Ellis did not violate Rule 7.13 by blocking home plate without possession of the ball was upheld, the call was correct. At the time of the instant replay review, the contest was tied, 0-0. The contest ultimately ended in a tie, 4-4, in 10 innings.

Challenge: 3 Umpire Calls Upheld on 1st Replay Decisions

Umpire Fieldin Culbreth's call of safe was challenged and upheld after instant replay review, marking the first ever instant replay challenge in MLB history. Accompanying Culbreth on this debut day of Spring Training expanded instant replay were umpires Will Little and Bill Miller.

At present and in the future, instant replay challenges (as in S-01 and S-03) and umpire crew chief-initiated reviews (such as S-02) will be available in sortable list format via the UEFL Portal's Instant Replays page.

Grapefruit replay affirmed two umpire calls.
Replay S-01: With two out and one on in the bottom of the 6th inning of Monday's Blue Jays-Twins game, Blue Jays batter Chris Rahl hit a grounder off Twins pitcher Kyle Drabek to shortstop Munenori Kawasaki, who threw high to first baseman Jared Goedert, who attempted to stretch and keep his foot on the first base bag while catching the ball. Initially ruled safe (pulled foot) by 1B Umpire Culbreth, the play was challenged, reviewed and stood as called, an error charged to Kawasaki for the pulled foot. At the time of the replay, the Twins were leading, 8-2.
Video: Call upheld; Rahl ruled safe after replay review (MIN) / Replay official: Brian O'Nora.

Replay S-02: With two out in the 8th inning of the Blue Jays-Twins game, 1B Umpire Will Little ruled Twins batter-runner Doug Bernier safe at first base. Replays confirm Bernier beat Blue Jays shortstop Kevin Nolan's throw and Little's call was upheld. At the time of that review, the Twins were leading, 12-2. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 12-2.
Video: Call upheld; Bernier is safe at first (MIN) / Replay official: Brian O'Nora.
In Arizona, replay likewise upheld the initial call.

Replay S-03: With one out and one on in the top of the 2nd inning of the Angels-Diamondbacks game in Arizona, 2B Umpire Bill Miller ruled Angels baserunner Luis Jimenez out at second base. Replays indicate D'Backs second baseman Aaron Hill successfully tagged Jimenez off the base and Miller's call was accordingly upheld. At the time of the replay, the contest was tied, 0-0.
Video: Call upheld; Jimenez ruled out on stolen base attempt (LAA) Replay official: Adam Hamari.

These are the 1st, 2nd & 3rd instant replay reviews in MLB history.
