WATCH: Controversial non-home run call during Clemson-UGA game

WATCH: Controversial non-home run call during Clemson-UGA game


by - Assoc. Editor -

It was a tough and long Tuesday night in Athens for the Clemson baseball team, who lost to Georgia 4-3 after battling for 15 innings.

During the contest, Clemson freshman infielder Jarren Purify appeared to hit a home run to left field, but it was called a foul ball by the umpire.

The play was reviewed, and the foul call was upheld.

Fans on social media, not just Tiger fans, were surprised by the controversial call, which certainly affected the closely played contest.

I wasn't there in person covering the game, so I am not 100 percent sure if it was a home run or a foul ball, but the angle of the following video sure makes it look like a homer.

Check out the video below and see what you think.

Another tough break for Clemson:

spacer The ball clearly disappears behind the foul pole which means it's fair
