Spring training baseball made its return on Sunday with Grapefruit League video games in Florida and Cactus League video games in Arizona. And as one will must ask with the first spring training game of the year, everyone used to be working to accumulate their rhythm support — that included the umpires.
But in Hernandez’s case — largely belief concerning the worst MLB umpire — he used to be looking appreciate his ordinary self. Now now not lower than that used to be what Cardinals play-by-play announcer Dan McLaughlin pointed out in the first inning as Hernandez ruled a borderline pitch a ball.

And while I’m frequently fascinated by criticizing Angel Hernandez (because he’s bad at his job), it did seem that Hernandez precisely ruled the 1-1 pitch a ball no matter an very just appropriate frame try by Yadier Molina.
