Second base

Never been a big fan of instant replay, but the Orioles have too much history with disputed home runs to argue against the use of video review to get them right. The first review at Camden Yards this season helped the Orioles tie Wednesday night's game in the bottom of the third inning. Adam Jones (pictured) hit a line drive over the State Farm sign in left center field, but hit the railing right behind the fence and bounced back into play. Second base umpire Brian Knight originally ruled the ball to be in play, but it was an almost impossible ball to judge. It was very clear on the replay, however, that the ball cleared the fence and the umpires quickly reversed themselves.
