MLB Replay Review 051: Seth Buckminster (01)

Instant Replay Review overturned 3B Umpire Seth Buckminster's out call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Angels-Mariners game. With one out and one on, Mariners batter Corey Hart hit a 3-1 fastball from Angels pitcher Michael Kohn to in the air left fielder Josh Hamilton, whereupon the baseball fell to the ground during the catch and transfer motion. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Mariners Manager Lloyd McClendon, Buckminster's ruling that Hamilton caught the ball and dropped it after completing the catch and on the transfer was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Mariners were leading, 4-3. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

This is Seth Buckminster (67)'s first Instant Replay Review of 2014.
