MLB Instant Replay Review 070: Pat Hoberg (01)

Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Pat Hoberg's HR (fair ball) call in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Athletics-Mariners game. With none out and none on, Mariners batter Kyle Seager hit a 0-1 fastball from A's pitcher Tommy Milone to deep right field and towards the foul pole. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a request by Athletics Manager Bob Melvin and initiation by Crew Chief Tom Hallion, Hoberg's ruling that the ball left the playing field in fair territory was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Mariners were leading, 2-0. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 6-4.

This is Pat Hoberg (31)'s first Instant Replay Review of 2014.
Pat Hoberg is now 0/1 (.000 Affirmation Rate) in Replay Reviews in 2014.
