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.
i very narrowly agree... the point is that letting a ball go out is easier than stopping it and there are obvious, legitimate reasons for the rule. you're arguing an isolated incident, which is a very small compromise to make for a good rule.
