Here’s what you just saw.

Laguna hitter Jonathan Jones clearly took a full swing on a pitch thrown by Mexico’s Reinier Roibal. But somehow, home plate umpire Ulises Domínguez determined Jones checked his swing and called a ball.

Then, first base umpire Rodolfo Pastrana backed him up.

Numerous replays did nothing to explain how two men could blow a call so badly on the same play.

The league responded by suspending Dominguez and Pastrana for the rest of the season and issuing a warning to the other two crew members for not overturning the call.
