The Greatest Play That Wasn't

"That was very clear, and very simple."

Some people have sympathy for the umpire here. We have sympathy for the catcher. Check out here the greatest play of the year, that wasn't.

Dept. of Copyright Claims
10-21 pm
There was a Youtube and a separate TV broadcast news video of the play available, for a short time today, on multiple Internet sites. Major League Baseball, the behemoth that enjoys a unique court-authorized exemption from antitrust laws, objected to its use on the grounds it owns a copyright of every frame of the video and reproductions of the same.

Now, the video is gone. We can hope MLBs antitrust exemption will soon be gone, as well.
