Watch the Adrian Beltre Foul Ball No-Call

Well it certainly was a pretty exciting game 1 of the 2011 World Series as the St. Louis Cardinals came out on top over the Texas Rangers 3-2. What the game will be remembered for though was when in the top of the ninth with one out, Texas third baseman Adrian Beltre hit a ball that hit his foot and then went into fair territory. The ball was not called dead as it should have been, Cardinals third baseman David Freese fielded the ball and threw to first to get the second out of the inning. Let's go to the videotape.

And there is Fox's gratification for the weird infrared camera they cranked out last night. The video isn't the best but it does show that the ball did hit Beltre's foot and thus should've been called a foul ball. And you can hear the calls for instant replay coming.
