Brian McCann’s Cool Under Fire Cheshire Cat Grin at Plate Umpire Upon Tag Out of Greg Byrd May Have Swayed Call


In the 5th inning of the Astros vs. Yankees baseball playoff game, Greg Byrd rounded third and headed for home to beat a throw from left field by the Astro’s Marwin Gonzalez, who made a great throw to home plate where he was tagged out by catcher Brian McCann, but it was close call, so close that they went to replay to check it. When you look at the replay, notice Brian McCann having looked over at the ump with a weirdly cool grin on his face, in that split second, great acting if Byrd was really safe.
