There is a tradition of fans growing angry at umpires' calls that go against their team. But even though it appeared this was a terrible call, the terrible acts of a lot of Atlanta fans was even worse. It makes me wonder if American fans are going the way of the soccer rowdies in Europe.
St. Louis won the game 6 to 3 and ended the Braves' season.
Atlanta's manager told the umpires he was officially playing the game under protest. A ruling is expected later tonight.
