Here is what crew chief Charlie Reliford said about A-Rod’s home run and the review:

“A fair ball is fair when it leaves the playing field. That’s why the foul poles are there to help us. We had it going right over the pole, all four of us had it going right over the pole on the field. Our views of the replays confirmed that. It was not inconclusive, it was conclusive that Brian’s call was correct.”

“Everything went exactly like they trained us it would go.”
