Obstruction? No.

Obstruction? No.

How is it obstruction when the runner slid into third base, stood up, then leans over and puts his hands on a defender on the ground (who is not in the baseline between third and home) and makes no effort (instead goes out of his way to “trip” over him) to run down the baseline from third? Allen Craig should be given an Oscar for that performance. Ending that pivotal game by placing the game into the hands of an umpire on a controversial judgment call is ridiculous. Obstruction my a**.
