Me, too. Tough angle on that play on TV. It looked wide but I also thought that I saw a little chalk. 8-o Either way, the ump was in position and made the call immediately.

It is unfortunate that Wood wasn't allowed to hit. :-t

something definitely flew up but i dont know if it was chalk. dont they just spray paint the outfield lines and put chalk in the infield? or do they use chalk in the outfield lines as well?

I agree Lofunzo...It was a very close call...but like you said, the ump was right there to make the call...that is all you can ask from them..
I was really upset with Alf coming out and basically pushing the ump...and with the fans throwing stuff on the field... :-t

and jd..I don't know about all fields but Wrigley uses a mix chalk and paint...With the game being the second game of a double header, they chalked the lines between games...

Now that I've seen the replay of Alou's shot yesterday...HE WAS ROBBED!!!!!!! You could see chalk kick up! Grrrrr..... Guess I'll have to settle for Alou's 5/5 2 runs, hr, 4 rbi's today! :-D

Both pitchers hit each other today by the way. Not a big surprise, but still interesting. LaRussa and Baker exchanged words over it. :-b
