HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros removed a yellow board on an outfield wall today that contributed to a botched home run call the
Geovany Soto got an inside-the-park three-run homer in the
fourth inning despite replays showing that it should have been an
automatic home run. The ball bounced just to the right of the
yellow line on the wall in left-center field.
Baseball executive Bob Watson says -- quote -- "There was a
yellow board that was facing us and it was kind of flopping in the
breeze. So we took the board out and we had them paint a yellow
line on the inside wall facing the third base stands."
