In between innings, Chad Fairchild owned up to Chris Bassitt for missing a strike call on Dansby Swanson pic.twitter.com/yPWhnSgymx SNY (@SNYtv) May 3, 2022 "I knew it was a strike, but at the same time, I think umpires, they have one of the hardest jobs in the world," Bassitt said, according to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo. "I have no problem if an umpire misses a call. That happens. But especially if an umpire just accepts that, well, what am I going to say? It is what it is."I say all the time that it was a strike, and then I go back and look at it, and they're right. So I ain't going to be mad at no umpire, I'll tell you that."Bassitt, 33, was not only accepting of Fairchild's admission, but he also offered his own apology to the umpire for leaping off the mound and celebrating a strikeout that hadn't been determined yet."He said he was wrong. I said I was wrong," Bassitt said. "I was like, 'All right. Let's move on.'"Copyright © 2022 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved. Certain content reproduced under license.
