You Be the Ump

How many times have you been to a game and thought a runner was safe (or out) when the umpire ruled it the other way? For all the jokes about umps having bad eyesight or slow reactions, they're spot-on the vast majority of the time. As we zoom in closer, the Diamondbacks John McDonald gets his foot on the base before the throw arrives.
Have you ever wondered why no one ever describes the play as "safe by six feet?" That's how far the ball was from Mets 1st baseman Ike Davis when McDonald arrived.
