Atlanta Braves fans littered Turner Field with cans of beer after a controversial infield fly rule in the eighth inning during Friday night's National League wild card game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
With one out in the eighth and Braves runners on first and second base, Braves batter Andrelton Simmons hit a high popup to short left field. The ball fell between Cardinals shortstop Pete Kozma and left fielder Matt Holliday, and the play should have resulted in bases loaded for the Braves with one out. However, the left field umpire called Simmons out with a late "infield fly" call for the second out of the inning, despite the fact that the ball landed about 40 feet past the infield.
Braves fans expressed their anger by throwing the cans of beer and other litter onto the field, resulting in an 18-minute delay in the game to clean up the debris.
The Braves lost the game to the Cardinals 6-3, ending their season. It's a shame that Chipper Jones' career has to end on a note like this.
