In a high school game between Castle and Kailua the outfield runs through the fence on a mission to catch the ball:
Think the right call was to let the home run stand?
That is an out all the way. This outfielder makes the catch of the century, and yet it's called a home run. She clearly made the catch while still on the field. If the fence hadn't been so flimsy, she would have held on to the ball and come down with a hard crash landing on the field. She was robbed. Great play though!
I don't know. She is already going through the fence before the ball touches her glove. If that fence were solid then she would have not gotten to it. She doesn't even attempt to jump up for the ball. If she would have jumped for the ball and then went through the fence, I would say that it was good. But plowing through the fence is like extending the field and I don't think you should be allowed to do that. That would be just like picking up the fence and moving it back.
Great hustle regardless.
Nope. She was already knocking the barrier down when the ball entered her glove. If the fence was solid, whe would not have been able to handle the ball. It's clearly a home run. I do agree, however, that it was a great effort by the fielder!
i dont know guys...i think she makes the catch regardless, the fence is only a little above her waist anyways, she could have easily leaned over and still made the catch, you see it in baseball all the time. but who knows i guess we had to be there!
