    I'm listening to MLB radio and they keep saying "if it was called a HR on the fan interference." Can someone explain how it would have been a home run?

    For posterity, I thought it might be useful to summarize the main highlights from last night's game in order here:

    Bradley
    Brasier
    Barnes
    Betts
    Benintendi

    I think that they mean if the fan interference was overruled on the grounds that the ball would have been over the fence regardless

    They said if you fall into the dugout/leave the field of play, it's not an out.

    Maybe someone here who's an expert on these sorts of things can chime in.

    It's an out.

    (6) When a fielder, after catching a fly ball, steps or falls into any out-of-play area. All other runners shall advance one base, without liability to be put out, from his last legally touched base at the time the fielder entered such out-of-play area.

    He's not considered in that out of play area if he' s leaping or leaning to make a catch. Essentially a player can't run into the dugout, then make a catch. If he leaps from in play then he can, but then ball is dead when he lands out of play, all runners advance, similar to a throw into the dugout/crowd.

    From boston.com

    Why did Benintendi’s catch look so familiar?

    Because, as Red Sox team historian Gordon Edes pointed out on Twitter, it looked remarkably like the play Carl Crawford failed to make in the final scene of the 2011 Red Sox season, when a liner by the Orioles’ Robert Andino eluded the hesitant left fielder and they had officially gagged away their postseason hopes like they were choking on a chicken bone. Which they might have been. The weird coincidence of Benintendi’s catch? He made it at Minute Maid Park … which is on Crawford Street, in Carl Crawford’s hometown. Mind blown? Eh, it already was, man.

    Butch Hobson was known for catching a pop up in the 3rd base dugout and being sprawled out on the infield after playing a bunt or slow grounder. Maybe other things as well.
