Mookie Betts and Jose Altuve (and a bunch of Houston Astros fans) have given us the most-controversial play of the MLB's postseason. It happened in the first inning of tonight's American League Championship Series game.
Altuve hit a deep shot to right. The ball looked like it was going to land in the first row of the stands. However, Betts went up for a catch, made some contact with a couple of Astros fans, the ball hit off them and bounced back onto the field.
The umpires then went to a review. They called Altuve out on fan interference.
The fans didn't appear to be reaching over the fence, but interference was still called.
Here's the full rule:
This is clearly going to be a play that's talked about for a long time, especially if the Astros lose tonight.
The Red Sox are winning, 2-0. The game is on TBS.
Update: The official ruling is actually that the play "stood," meaning interference was called on the field and there wasn't enough evidence to overturn it.
