Protested game

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

American League president Lee MacPhail upheld the protest by the Kansas City Royals in the Pine Tar Incident in 1983.
American League president Lee MacPhail upheld the protest by the Kansas City Royals in the Pine Tar Incident in 1983.

A protested game occurs in baseball when a manager believes that an umpire's decision is in violation of the official rules. In such cases, the manager can raise a protest by informing the umpires, and the game continues to be played "under protest." An umpire's judgment call (such as balls and strikes, safe or out, fair or foul) may not be protested.

Rules

In Major League Baseball (MLB), protests are governed by Rule 7.04, "Protesting Games".[1]

A protested game is reviewed and adjudicated by the league president,[1] or the executive vice president of baseball operations,[2][3] who may order a game resumed (replayed from the point of the protested decision) only if finding the umpire's decision was in violation of the rules and the decision "adversely affected the protesting team’s chances of winning the game."[1][a] A well-known example of a protested game in MLB was the Pine Tar Incident in 1983, which is the only time to date that a protested game in the American League has been ordered replayed from the point-of-protest.

Upheld protests in MLB

Upheld protests are a rare event; the below tables list upheld protests in MLB.

Resumed games

As of July 2019, there are only 15 known occurrences of a protest being upheld and the game being resumed from the point at which the protest was raised.[4] By comparison, there have been 15 unassisted triple plays in MLB history, also as of July 2019.[5]

Non-resumed games

There have been other instances of a protest being upheld, with the game not resumed from the point at which the protest was raised. Examples include:

Upheld protests with other remedy
Date Venue Protesting team Inning Opposing team Nature of protest Outcome Ref.
May 7–8, 1902 West Side Park, Chicago New York Giants Chicago Orphans The pitcher's plate (pitching rubber) was found to be the wrong distance from home plate. New York's protest was upheld, and the league ordered the games to be replayed. Replayed [32][33]
October 2, 1912 West Side Park, Chicago Pittsburgh Pirates 10th (bottom) Chicago Cubs Chicago won in extra innings, with the winning run driven in by a player who batted out of order. The basis of Pittsburgh's protest was that "the umpire was required to call attention to any infraction of the rules." The protest was upheld and the game result was simply removed from the league standings, as the protest was ruled on late in the 1912 season, with both teams out of pennant contention. No contest [34][35]
May 14, 1914 Federal League Park, Buffalo Chicago Whales 9th (bottom) Buffalo Blues Umpire's ruling following a dropped ball on an infield fly. League president upheld the protest and ordered the entire game replayed.[b] Replayed [36][37][38]
June 19, 1915 Terrapin Park, Baltimore Baltimore Terrapins 1st (top) Chicago Whales Umpire allowed a Chicago player to score after he had left the field and gone to the bench. League president upheld the protest and ordered the entire game replayed.[b] Replayed [39][40]
April 17, 1917 Braves Field, Boston Philadelphia Phillies 2nd (top) Boston Braves Umpire ruled a Phillies player out for running outside the base path, on a play when the runner was not avoiding a tag. League president upheld the protest and ordered the entire game replayed. Replayed [41][42]
August 19, 1917 Navin Field, Detroit Washington Senators 9th (bottom) Detroit Tigers Detroit's third base coach (Ty Cobb) touched the Detroit baserunner who scored the winning run of the game as he rounded third base. League president upheld the protest and ordered the entire game replayed. Replayed [43][44]
June 3, 1918 Ebbets Field, Brooklyn Brooklyn Robins 6th (top) St. Louis Cardinals A Cardinals baserunner reached third base, started to run back to second base, then ran directly to home plate without re-touching third base; umpire allowed the run to count. League president upheld the protest and ordered the entire game replayed. Replayed [45][46]
July 28, 1924 Sportsman's Park, St. Louis St. Louis Browns 9th (bottom) Boston Red Sox Umpire's misunderstanding of substitutions led to the Browns batting out of order. League president upheld the protest and ordered the entire game replayed. Replayed [47][48]
July 20, 1947 Ebbets Field, Brooklyn St. Louis Cardinals 9th (top) Brooklyn Dodgers With the Cardinals leading 2–0, their batter hit a deep drive that was signaled as not a home run by one umpire. The batter, in running the bases, slowed up after seeing it signaled as a home run by another umpire and was thrown out at the plate; this was the basis of the protest. The protest was upheld, however the remedy was not to re-play the game from the point of protest; the league president ruled that the home run would count. As the Dodgers had gone on to score three runs in the bottom of the ninth, this turned a 3–2 Dodgers win into a 3–3 tie. The tie game stands as an official result, with all individual records counting. A replay of the tied game was held on August 18, 1947, which was won by the Dodgers. Counted as a tie game and replayed [4][49][50]

Notes

  1. ^ In practice, if the protesting team goes on to win the game, their protest is considered moot, although MLB rules do not specifically state this.
  2. ^ a b Protest occurred within the Federal League, which is considered to have been a major league.
