Controversial Call, could have COST the Stros

Written by: Keith "Grizz" Crear | SFL Photographer/Sports Blogger

Early on in Game 4 of the ALCS, Altuve hit a home run with one on base to right field, but was called back due to, and I dare say this, "Fan Interference". The home run would have tied the game but kept the Redsox ahead early on.

The stadium was LIVID when the crew chief Joe West, who was manning the right-field line in Wednesday's critical Game 4 of the American League Championship Series, had called fan interference and ruled Altuve out. As the timely review played out, the call on the field stood, that a fan interfered with Mookie Betts on making the catch. I dont know how clear it could be on the replay that Mookie closed his glove seconds before the fan was in his view of play. And also consider this, the fan was well within his right to catch the ball because it was well over the line that he did NOT reach over. 

We will see how this effects the Astros tonight, as this is a "Win-Or- Go Home" game for them at Minute Maid. The Boston Redsox lead the series 3-1.

Tonight's game is scheduled for 7:09pm Central time
