MLB says umpires made 'improper call'


CLEVELAND (AP) — Major League Baseball acknowledges an "improper call" was made by umpires in the ninth inning of a game between the Cleveland Indians and Oakland Athletics.

Umpires failed to reverse a disputed tying home run by Oakland's Adam Rosales after a video review Wednesday. MLB executive vice president Joe Torre says the judgment call by umpire Angel Hernandez and his crew "stands as final."

Torre says "given what we saw, we recognize an improper call was made. Perfection is an impossible standard in any endeavor, but our goal is always to get the calls right."
