SEC Baseball Tournament controversy: Tennessee game-winning run against Alabama called off after interference
In the SEC, controversial calls are not limited to the gridiron.
If you missed it, Tennessee and Alabama are currently battling it out in the 2021 SEC Baseball Tournament and the game has made it to extra innings thanks to an interesting call.
The Vols had to rally to make this a game and in the bottom of the ninth, had the opportunity to win it with runners on the corners with only one out.
However, just when it appeared Tennessee had won the game, the umpires called for interference on this play.

Even the official Tennessee Baseball account weighed in on the call:
Well, looked like we had a walk-off win but Ferguson is called for interference on the slide into second and Alabama escapes the jam. Unbelievable.

Of course, Tennessee fans were not very pleased with this one:
He clearly put his arm up to try to shield his face from a collision and then removed it before causing any impactful contact.
