MLB Instant Replay Review 045: Vic Carapazza (01)

Instant Replay Review upheld 1B Umpire Vic Carapazza's foul ball (no HR) call in the top of the 3rd inning of the Athletics-Twins game. With one out and none on, A's batter Jed Lowrie hit a 3-2 changeup from Twins pitcher Kevin Correia to deep right field and past the foul pole. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a request by A's Manager Bob Melvin and initiation by crew chief Bill Miller, Carapazza's ruling that the ball left the playing field in foul territory (to the right of the foul pole) was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the A's were leading, 2-1. The A's ultimately won the contest, 8-3.
