Chipper Jones weighs in heavily on blown home run call

  • David Whitlock

There are few players of today’s era (okay, literally yesterday’s era) that are more respected than Chipper Jones.  He played the game, did it the right way, battled through injuries, won a World Series, played in three, 8 All Star games, career .303, 468 home runs.

So after a clearly blown home run call by crew chief Angel Hernandez in the Oakland Athletics vs. Cleveland Indians game Wednesday night, even with instant replay, Chipper took to Twitter to ask the tough questions.  Perhaps he’s had a dustup with Angel Hernandez before, his career (1993-2012) completely has overlapped Hernandez (1993-2013).

Chipper expresses frustration and demands accountability via tweets:




It’s one thing for media and fans to take after an ump and a situation, it’s another for a relative disinterested third party pointing out the obvious.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
