LOL. No one in their right mind would stop/hinder a ball like that from landing onto the ground first.

I'm talking about the obvious fly balls that have zero chance of being good, where you are standing many feet behind the baseline. Getting a technical call on the rules from stopping that type of ball is just abuse of the rules, when we ALL know it's long/out. Sour grapes.
