MLB Instant Replay Review 057: Jerry Meals (02)

Instant Replay Review affirmed 1B Umpire Jerry Meals' HR (fair) call in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Rangers-Red Sox game. With one out and two on, Red Sox batter David Ortiz hit a 1-1 fastball from Rangers pitcher Neal Cotts to deep right field near the foul pole. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a request by Rangers Manager Ron Washington and initiation by crew chief Jerry Meals, Meals' ruling that the fly ball left the playing field in fair territory was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Red Sox were leading, 4-2. The Red Sox ultimately won the contest, 4-2.
