Besides, both Torre and Holbrook thought it was the right call.
Pete Kozma drifted back, throwing up his hand in that universal baseball gesture, "I've got it." Only one problem. Right before the ball came down, the rookie veered out of the way, apparently thinking left fielder Matt Holliday was going to take it.
The ball dropped harmlessly in the grass. The crowd roared, thinking the Atlanta Braves had loaded the bases with one out. Only one problem. Standing nearby, umpire Sam Holbrook had thrown up his right arm, signaling Simmons was out.
Infield fly rule disputed call causes havoc before St
This time, it cost the Braves. A portion of the official infield fly rule reads as follows:
When it seems apparent that a batted ball will be an Infield Fly, the umpire shall immediately declare ''Infield Fly'' for the benefit of the runners. If the ball is near the baselines, the umpire shall declare ''Infield Fly, if Fair.''
The infield fly rule gives umpires the discretion to call an automatic out on a popup with more than one runner on base, largely to prevent the team in the field from intentionally letting the ball drop so they can get an extra out, since the runners can't drift too far away from the bag for fear of getting doubled off after the catch.
"The infield fly rule is to protect the runners, really," Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said.
At issue was whether Kozma had established his position to make the catch, and whether it should have been made under any circumstances on a popup that far beyond the infield.
What, exactly, did happen?

An INFIELD FLY is a fair fly ball (not including a line drive nor an attempted bunt) which can be caught by an infielder with ordinary effort, when first and second, or first, second and third bases are occupied, before two are out. The pitcher, catcher and any outfielder who stations himself in the infield on the play shall be considered infielders for the purpose of this rule.
"It's all judged on what the fielder does," said the umpire, who was stationed down the left field line as part of the expanded six man crew that is used in the playoffs. "Once that fielder establishes himself and he has ordinary effort on the ball, that's when the call is made. So it wouldn't matter whether it was from third base or on the line out there. It's all based on what the fielder does. That's what I went on, and that's what I read."
"You never want to see something get violent like that," said Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, who played his final game. "But when you've got (what is Fendi Monster Wallet On Chain
