Correct. See the Deckinger call at 1st base in the 1985 World Series. The Cardinals got royally screwed (pun intended), and there was all the bitching and moaning about it, as there should be in a case where the call was blown as bad as that was. And then, that was it. You don't hear about it that much, outside of one of those ESPN "Top 20 Worst Calls" or whatever. There was never any hour long specials, or made for cable movies, like they do for the poor little Boston fans, or the "long suffering" Cubs fans.
