MLB Instant Replay Review 454: Fieldin Culbreth (06)

Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Fieldin Culbreth's foul ball (no fan interference) call in the top of the 9th inning of the Cardinals-Blue Jays game. With one out and none on, Cardinals batter Tony Cruz hit a 0-0 fastball from Blue Jays pitcher Casey Janssen on a fly ball to right fielder Jose Bautista, who attempted to catch the foul fly near the stands. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons, Culbreth's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect.* At the time of the review, the Blue Jays were leading, 3-1. The Blue Jays ultimately won the contest, 3-1.
