Brewers pitcher Zack Godley was the victim of the most absurd “obstruction” call I have ever seen in my entire life.
During the Brewers’ Wednesday afternoon game against the Marlins, Godley gave up a tapper back to him by Miami’s Isan Diaz. Godley scooped up the ball, and threw Diaz out at first.
At that point, first base umpire Marty Foster lost his damn mind. He pointed at Godley, ruling he obstructed Diaz’ path to first, despite the fact that he was no where near Diaz, or the base at the time he threw Diaz out.
Check out this madness:

Sure enough, fans are lashing out against Marty Foster for his terrible judgement.
This might be one of the worst calls I’ve ever seen. Diaz was running on the infield grass and still was never interfered with. https://t.co/uNGL2ZFO9F

By the time Godley "interfered" Vogelbach already had the ball amd secured the out.
Marty Foster needs to be sent down to the bus leagues in the middle of Montana https://t.co/kPm626MAx0

1B umpire Marty Foster with a ridiculous interference call on #Brewers pitcher Zack Godley on Isan Diaz running to 1B on tapper down line. Absolutely ridiculous. Diaz was running on infield grass and there still was no interference on Godley. Just making up a call there, folks.

This might just be the most absurd call I've ever seen in a major league game. Marty Foster called interference on Godley, the pitcher, allowing Diaz to reach base. https://t.co/Iwr7MB9x4Y

I absolutely love Brian Anderson grilling Marty Foster (@MLBUA) over his job done so far today.
What an atrocious call that lead to a hectic inning for the Brewers. As B.A. put it, he was just searching for something that wasn't there to make a call.

What a crap call. That's really, really bad umpiring by Marty Foster. @MLBUA

Just watching the Brewers game while I eat my lunch and just saw the worst call I have ever seen in a Major League Baseball game. What in the world???? That’s a simple, standard 1-3 out. Not sure how you can possibly get that wrong Marty Foster. Wow. Just wow.

I think it’s safe to say that Marty Foster owes us all an explanation on how the hell he just called an obstruction on that play.
He probably owes Zack Godley an apology, as well.
