Red Sox vs. Astros: Fan involved in Mookie Betts interference play says it's 'about the worst call' he's ever seenHe's adamant that there was no interference on the play

That Astros fan in the orange shirt who was determined to have interfered with a potential Mookie Betts catch during Wednesday's ALCS Game 4 has chimed in on the ruling, and he's not thrilled. 

Troy Caldwell was sitting in the first row of the stands in right field at Minute Maid Park when Jose Altuve hit a ball that looked like it could turn into a game-tying, two-run home run in the bottom of the first inning. But as the ball headed straight towards Caldwell in the stands, Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts soared in an attempt to make the catch. 

Betts and Caldwell ended up making contact with one another in their mutual desire to catch the ball, and field umpire Joe West determined that Caldwell interfered with the play. The play went to review and that call was upheld due to insufficient evidence. Caldwell was apparently stunned.

"I don't understand even what happened," said Caldwell, per the Boston Globe. "I was over the line and the ball hit — I had my hands out, you can see it. I got like 800 pictures that already came to me — but I'm over the line and I put my hand out and the ball hit my hand. I never touched his glove. I don't understand why it wasn't a home run.

"That's about the worst call I've ever seen. That ball was gone, no matter what. My hand wasn't over the yellow."  

Here's a look at the play:

 A closer look:

Asked about his thoughts on West making the ruling that took away the two-run dinger that would have tied the game, Caldwell was pretty clear.

"I don't think it's appropriate for the papers," he said. "That ball was gone, no matter what. My hand wasn't over the yellow. My hand was right here and it hit my hand so it was a home run, no matter what."

In any case, the ruling wiped out a potential two-run dinger for Houston and the Red Sox were able to escape that first inning without allowing the Astros to get on the board. The loss of those two runs would ultimately prove to be extremely costly, as Boston went on to win by a final score of 8-6 in an extremely tight back-and-forth affair, putting them up in the series three games to one. The Red Sox will have a chance to clinch the series Thursday in Houston.

"If Boston wins this series, then Joe West is the MVP," Caldwell said. "I'll give that to you right now."

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started Internettop40.com about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started Internttop40.com. I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.

 

Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.

 

Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
