Watch One of the Missed Calls that Cost Alabama Softball Against Tennessee (Video)
Alabama softball dropped two of three this weekend against 8th-ranked Tennessee, but both losses were highlighted by key missed calls.
In a 2-1 game two loss, umpires said center fielder Haylie McCleney didn’t catch a deep flyball after it trickled out of her glove following a collision with the fence. That catch would have been out number three in the 6th inning but gave the Volunteers the game-winning run instead.
The most egregious missed call came in game one. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh inning and the game tied 3-3, umpires ruled a Madison Shipman ground ball fair as it bounced down the third base line. The walk-off single gave Tennessee a 4-3 win. Watch the final at-bat for yourself and tell us what you think.
