The awful umpring in the 1997 NLCS game



I don't know why this was done today, but a guy I know linked an article on facebook about the horrendous strike zone given to Livan Hernandez that day. Again I'm not sure why the article was just written today, but some of these calls are so bad it almost makes me










Apparently some people can't see the gifs so here's a link, scroll down for the gifs

They work for me, what happens when you just type the address for them in your browser?

I went to one of the links and now only that picture shows up. I don't know what that means.

I don't care about MLB and don't follow the braves, I just thought it was funny.

re: The awful umpring in the 1997 NLCS game


your second link worked
yea those were outside but at least they seemed consistent, it's not like he was all over the place getting calls, they were all pretty much in the same spot.
Also a few of them are 2 seam fastballs that are tailing away

here's one of the gifs I got to work, they pretty much all look like this



eta: I see the gifs in the OP now

The pics work for me and yes that is a terrible strike zone.

He was calling a strike every time that pitch was outside. Hitters needed to adjust.

Eric Gregg is the worst umpire ever. Dekinger made a ball call. Gregg just sucks.

I know right. What shitty hitter can't drive a pitch that's a foot off the plate?

If it was against any other team I'd feel bad. But the Braves used to benefit from a huge strike zone for years. frick em

re: The awful umpring in the 1997 NLCS game


it's not like the Braves weren't trying to swing at some of the pitches LINK

The look on Charlie Williams's face when he says that McGriff swung on the third strike was hilarious
