Discussion of 2017 AL and NL Wild Card Games

Discussion for the 2017 postseason's AL and NL Wild Card Games is now open.

Home plate umpire performance is listed following the completion of each contest according to pitch f/x and UEFL Rules 6-2-b-a (horizontal bound, "Kulpa Rule") and 6-2-b-b (vertical strike zone, "Miller Rule"). Fouls, swinging strikes, balls batted into play, and hit-by-pitches are excluded from the analysis. Of the remaining callable pitches, the Definition of Terms shall govern: "A STRIKE is a legal pitch when so called by the umpire, which...passes through any part of the strike zone."

Plays include significant plays and instant replay reviews, if such plays occur. Call +/- also included/highlighted.
