  WS grounder to 1st - PUs Call ???  
Last night's WS game.

Grounder to 1st (right down the line).

U1 makes the "fair call" (from behind F3)!
Looked like PU got "tied up" coming out around F2.

Even so, why didn't PU make the call???

No way U1 actually saw the play (even tough he made the correct call).

IMO---the PU knew the call was suppose to be his by his body (position) mechanics as the batted ball, and the batter-runner went down the line; and he would of made the call had not U1 "HI-JACKED" his call.

"So why didn't he make the call???"
IMO---PU seeing U1 had made the correct call-[split second timing ahead of him] the PU simply remained silent.

Agreed, was not U1's call given his sight line being obstructed by F3's body..but no harm no foul----unless U1 had (wrongly) called B-R safe.
