I thought Brett was going to take the Umpires head off.
What a crappy call. This must have been before my time (Born in '91). Did the league ever overturn the call the umps made?
I just did some research and I am incorrect; the call was challenged by the Royals and the umpires call reversed. The Royals won the game

The game was played on July 24, 1983

Good thing the royals won the challenge . What a demented umpire though!
Never seen that before, thanks for sharing, it was interesting to say the least.

George Brett was my hero growing up. I loved the Royals. I remember this game and thinking what a douche Billy Martin was. I hated him and everyone of the Yankees.
