This call drew criticism from fans, who expressed their discontent on social media.

Umpires have faced mounting pressure from fans this season due to several questionable calls made during games. While it’s true that umpires have made mistakes throughout the season, players and fans have been eagerly waiting for improvements in their performance.

The distraction call during the Phillies-Diamondbacks game added to the frustration felt by fans, as they perceived it as unnecessary and disruptive to the flow of the game.

Can the Philadelphia Phillies get their MLB season back on track after win against Diamondbacks?
