This Has To Be The Worst Called Strike of the MLB Season
Being a home plate umpire in Major League Baseball is a difficult job. Pitchers these days are throwing some really nasty stuff that dances all over the place, which has to make it tough to call balls and strikes.
But every now and then an ump misses a call so badly that all we can do is scratch our heads and wonder how they could have ever made such a blatant mistake.
That happened over the weekend when San Francisco Giants closer Tyler Rogers threw a pitch that never came near the strike zone but still somehow was called a strike by home plate umpire Dan Iassogna.

Kansas City’s Vinnie Pasquantino was the poor batter in that situation, and although he later reached base on a catcher’s interference call, no hitter should have to start an at-bat with a call as bad as that one.
