Sunday Night Umps Blow HR Call

The umpires in tonight's Sunday Night game on ESPN have just really blown a home run call that Carlos Delgado hit. Mike Reilly is the 3rd base ump who originally called it a homerun. Replays showed the ball hit the foul pole, but after the umps got together and talked about it, they ruled the ball was foul. Upon further review, the fan that caught the ball showed evidence that the ball was marked with black spots off where it hit the pole. The pole also had a mark on it. I know umpires can't go look at video evidence, but I have a question... can they look at the pole, and ball to see if there are matching marks?

In the 1969 World Series the umps famously looked at a ball that Gil Hodges had said had hit a Mets batter on the foot. The ump saw shoe polish on the ball and awarded the batter the base. Dunno if the rules have changed since then.

But wasn't there a case in Florida where the umps went to a cameraman in the booth to watch a replay quickly on a HR call?

Reilly, who at first called the play correctly, would have had to have been 12 feet tall to see where the ball hit.
