Softball Player is Safe By a Mile, Umpire Still Calls Her “Out” (Video)

Umpire blown call

This softball umpire is going viral for all the wrong reasons.

During a recent high school softball game in Fultondale, Alabama, a spectator captured footage of what may very well be the worst call in the history of sports.

After hitting a soft dribbler just a few feet in front of home plate, the batter races down the first base line and clearly beats out the throw.  Everyone within a country mile could tell that she was safe…except for the first base umpire, who called her “out” with confidence.

I’ve watched this clip probably 100 times already, and I’m still not sure what this ump is looking at.  Am I missing something?
