Wouldn't official scorers take a look at close plays like this a few times on the TV replay before making their final decision?
i was under the impression that they do, though the official scorer of this game said:
I saw it, called it immediately [and] believed it was a hit," the game's official scorer, Bob Webb, said. "I think that's a hit in every circumstance. It was a difficult play. Even if he comes up with the ball cleanly, in my estimation, he's got more than ordinary difficulty in getting the runner at first base.
so it doesnt seem like he did much review of the play
