I was a Yankees fan but I think this call was a joke. George Brett's pine tar home run off of "Goose" Gossage. I liked Billy Martin, but come on! What a great home run off one of the best relief pitchers at that time. How can you protest that? How about having some dignity in defeat?
The call was overturned by the commissioner. They were ordered to play the last 1/2 inning. 1,200 people showed up to watch four minutes of baseball. It probably took twice as long for the players to put on their uniforms.
