Video of Tate, Williams collision and controversial ruling

The TinCaps split a doubleheader at Bowling Green Tuesday, winning the first game 4-0, but losing the second 1-0.

The only run in the second game came when Derek Dietrich hit a fly ball to left-center in the fourth inning. Donavan Tate made the catch and then collided with Everett Williams. The ball remained in his glove when he hit the ground, but rolled out after several seconds. The umpires ruled it wasn't a catch and Dietrich raced around the bases for an inside-the-park home run.

Fort Wayne manager Shawn Wooten argued the call and was ejected.

I talked to Wooten briefly a couple of hours after the game and he said Tate and Williams were still being evaluated. has video of the collision and the controversial ruling. It can be found here. The video is on the right and the play occurs around the 1:04 mark.
