The third out

The Tribune has posted three frames of the TV feed from Wednesday's Sox game, showing Angels catcher (and Buffalo Grove native) Josh Paul catching the controversial third strike thrown to AJ Pierzynski. To me, it's pretty clear the ball hit the dirt. In the second frame (which is actually the first frame zoomed in,) you see the ball nearly on the ground, not yet in contact with the glove. So the glove cannot influence its motion. In the third frame, the glove has just barely begun to close around the ball, and the ball is higher off the ground than in the previous frame. The ball is moving up. The ball can only be moving up if it struck something.

Like the dirt.

The call was right. No one from Anaheim may believe it, but it's right. And I feel more secure in the knowledge that the White Sox earned that victory. Good luck to them tonight, I've rigged a TV antenna on Poway's football press box so I can watch (and keep my crowd apprised on the message board.)
