Teachable Tag, A Swipe at Second, Magnifying May

In this Teachable Moment, tmac looks at 2B Umpire Ben May's positioning on a swipe tag play at second during a stolen base attempt by Angels baserunner David Fletcher, whom is thrown out by White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal.

May's out call was challenged by Los Angeles and confirmed as the correct ruling by Replay Review HQ. Notable is May's position adjustment as the play develops to create a better angle to see the tag on the runner's knee.
