It looks to me as if the fans' hands are over the wall and in the field of play.

U canít say definitively that he reached over the fence. There is no angle that shows it. Fans see what they wanna see. I see a guy whose body hadnít hit the wall yet, glove well ABOVE his head and multiple fans leaning and reaching out. Canít overturn call on the field. Period

Apparently, Bill Baer wasn't paying as much attention to the game as he should have been, but he was saved by the headline writer, who got the score right!

Saw it several times. To me it looks like Betts closed his glove too soon and missed it. Then the ball hits a fan's hand and a split second later Betts' glove hits the fans hand.

But shit happens. Bang bang call.

My 2nd favorite ALCS security guard.

I understand that the Astro's had enough cameras in the park, but unfortunately for them they were al focused on the Sox dugout.

Saw a better replay. I've changed my mind it looks like a fan did close Betts' glove.

Fix is in. Horrible calls in the series, all going cheating Boston's way.

Sad.

Now there's a shock!

The man involved says he's innocent and there is no way he was over the yellow line.

The white shirted guy's belly is over the line! His arm is further forward than his belly.

And the hands of Caldwell and the guy in the blue shirt are above and still further forward than the white shirted guy's hand.

Mookie was still heading toward the fence, as the follow through shows.

Betts' glove extended way back into the stands.  (Imagine the play by play call if he had caught it)

This cannot be refuted and was the reason the call was so easy.

Take the break and move on.  They should even out.
