Smallthoughts …What was the Correct call?

Start here


Reds vs Cubs the batter hits the ball it’s fielded by the first baseman who does a behind the back flip to the pitcher covering at first but the throw pulls the pitcher off the bag which the umpire ruled safe …the Cubs challagne the call then the call was overtuned and the baserunner was ruled out. Take a look at the video and decide …What was the correct call?

After viewing the video if you said the intimal call by the umpire was correct, you wouldn’t be alone in that assessment. It would of helped if Joey Votto the first baseman had made the sure handed play and not flip the ball behind his back causing the pitcher covering to be pulled off the bag.



  1. I agree with the ultimate out call but the behind the back flip as you stated was totally unnecessary and more of a showboat play than anything else.
