They're going to side with the umps because it's a judgment call. If it was a safe/out call at first it would be very cut and dry and they might admit it was wrong.
The fact that it was by far the deepest IFR ever called at 225 feet tells u everything. Shit, it was deep enough for someone like bourn or Constanza to score on a sac fly.
Plus the ball actually hit the ground partly because of where it was placed between the OF and SS. that should be a hint as to the correct answer.
