Umpire Jeremie Rehak somehow missed this Josh Staumont strike right down the middle

Jeremie Rehak missed call

Umpire Jeremie Rehak badly missed a strike call during Friday night’s Kansas City Royals-Minnesota Twins game.

Royals reliever Josh Staumont was in the game to pitch the seventh inning and protect a 5-1 lead. He had a 1-2 count on Ryan Jeffers and threw a 100 mph fastball down the middle. The pitch was a sure strike, but Rehak froze and called it a ball.

Announcers Steve Physioc and Rex Hudler could not believe Rehak missed the call. Neither could anyone else watching the game.

Luckily Staumont was able to record a strikeout a few pitches later, but his effort required a few more pitches than should have been necessary.

We have seen some truly awful calls over the years, and this belongs right there with them.
