NCAA statement on foul ball call during LSU, Oregon State College World Series game

During the bottom of the third inning in today’s game a ball was hit down the left field would line. Our third base umpire went out down the line and ruled the ball to be foul.

It was obviously a very close call but one that the umpire crew thought they ruled correctly.

Per our replay protocol either the head coach may come out onto the field and request the crew to get together or the umpire crew may get together on their own if they feel a review is warranted. In either situation, it is the sole authority of the crew chief to decide if any play is to go to review.

Nothing happened on this play that triggered a review.

Had this play gone to review AND was ruled fair by replay, the replay officials would have placed the runners on the bases they think they would have received had the ball been ruled fair.

The NCAA does not publicize the name or the location of the replay crew but that they are members of the NCAA Baseball Umpire Program most familiar with umpire mechanics and the NCAA playing rules.
