MLB Instant Replay Review 110: Lance Barrett (03)

Instant Replay Review overturned 3B Umpire Lance Barrett's safe call in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Mariners-Marlins game. With none out and two on, Marlins batter Marcell Ozuna hit a 3-1 fastball from Mariners pitcher Yoervis Medina on the ground back to Medina, who threw to third baseman Kyle Seager as Marlins baserunner R3 Reed Johnson arrived at third base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Marlins Manager Mike Redmond, Barrett's ruling that Seager legally caught the ball and tagged third base prior to Johnson's arrival was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the contest was tied, 4-4. The Marlins ultimately won the contest, 8-4.

This is Lance Barrett (94)'s third Instant Replay Review of 2014.

Why don't you guys get the terminology correct? There are 3 possibilities when going to replay: Confirmed, Stands, Overturned.

It's simple, easy, and understandable. Just get it right.

I think that the number of challenges due to the new transfer interpretation should also be tracked.

There are two results, either the call is reversed or is kept as is. Just like there's no such thing on the scoresheet as a half-swing, either it's a ball or a strike.
