This certainly wasn't the first time the umps have been at the center of a call that might've gone a different way with instant replay — though, in this case, Holbrook said he was "absolutely" sure he made the right ruling even after looking at the video.
"It's all judged on what the fielder does," Holbrook said. "Once that fielder establishes himself and he has ordinary effort on the ball, that's when the call is made. So it wouldn't matter whether it was third base or on the line out there. It's all based on what the fielder does. That's what I went on, that's what I read."
