New angle to controversial call in San Benito vs. Lewisville game

Umpire calls player safe

A force play at the plate, with the bases loaded, in a state semi-final softball game turned out to be a turning point in a game between San Benito and Lewisville.

The Lady Hounds led at the time and were nine outs from advancing to the state championship game.

The umpire calls the runner safe and Lewisville went on to take a lead and win the game.

Video shows that the throw beat the runner, and it show the catcher with her foot on the plate.

The umpire appears to be watching the tag and even waits to make the call until after the runner slides past.
