Baseball Player Vacates Base After Ump Incorrectly Calls “Safe”

Earlier this year, Justin Bour sprinted to 2nd base. He slid. The ball came in quickly from the catcher. The tag beat Bour’s hand to the bag. The umpire makes the call, “safe.” Knowing that he was out, Bour simply began walking toward his dugout. Cubs 2nd baseman, Javier Báez, ran over to Bour and tagged him. Bour didn’t care. He knew he was out and he wasn’t going to pretend that he was safe. He explained as much following the game.
