Yankees Catch A Break On Worst Umpire Call Ever – Video

Bad officiating has been the subject of Major League Baseball this month and Monday’s call by umpire Tim McClelland has to be by far the worst officiating ever. McClelland and his  team made three bad calls on the bases in the fourth and fifth innings of the Angels’ 10-1 loss to the New York Yankees in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series on Monday.

Jorge Posada and Robinson Cano both get tagged at third after a ground ball to the mound, but the ump calls out only Posada

Tim McClelland talked about the play after the game:

“On the play with Cano and Posada, I thought Cano was on the base. I was waiting for two players to be on the base, and when there was never the situation where both of them were on the base at the same time. When he tagged Cano, I thought Cano was on the base, and when Jorge touched the base and continued and tagged Posada out, I thought Posada was out …

McClelland said he and the other umpires routinely monitor television replays. What he saw Monday indicated that he made two mistakes while working third base. McClelland, who routinely is among the highest-rated umpires, is the crew chief for this ALCS.

“Obviously or not obviously, there were two missed calls,” McClelland said. “And I’m just out there trying to do my job and do it the best I can. Unfortunately, by instant replay, there were two missed calls.”
