It’s the play that nearly broke all of social media. It made Kate Upton go off on MLB on Twitter, the controversial play at the wall that was eventually called an out, and rightfully so.
The fan behind the call has been identified and if things don’t go well for Houston, he may need to change his name:
Here’s Troy Caldwell. He was the fan who was ruled to have interfered with the Astros potential home run ball. “I’m going to need security to escort me out of here if the Astros don’t come back to win this.” pic.twitter.com/IXE2uEzSoW

Classic Reagan Bush ’84 hat, and the girl next to him is a winner in my book. But this guy is potentially a couple hours away from being the next Steve Bartman. My question is, isn’t fan interference an automatic ejection? Why is he still even there? Fan interference is an automatic ejection, no questions asked. All that being said, if he didn’t interfere, Mookie makes that catch 1000%, I don’t care what AJ Hinch thinks, that’s a routine play for Mook. So point is, it’s an out regardless, so accept it Houston.
