Umpire Marty Foster owns up to his awful strike call in the Rays-Rangers game

This is the best you can hope for when a call is totally bungled. Evan Grant reports the postgame comments of umpire Marty Foster:

“I saw the pitch and, of course I don’t have the chance to do it again, but if I did, I wouldn’t call that pitch a strike,” Foster said after the game. “Joe was not violent. Joe was very professional. He was frustrated and I understand. He acted probably the best he can under that situation.”

Bad calls suck, but at least these days the guys who make them tend to own up after the fact.
