Yogi Berra said it best - 'It ain't over 'til it's over'...

New York high school baseball team throws away championship on a BIZARRE dropped third strike ruling - after celebrating too early...

Yogi Berra's adage of 'it ain't over 'til it's over' reared its ugly head in the New York State sectional baseball championships as one team celebrated too early - gifting their opposition the title. In the championship game for Section V in the town of Batavia out in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, Hornell High School held a 5-4 lead with one strike left against Palmyra-Macedon (Pal-Mac) - who had a runner on base. After Pal-Mac scored three runs in the seventh and final inning leading up to this at-bat, the home plate umpire called a third strike which the catcher dropped.

  1. Full game, the screw up is near the 2:14:50 mark. The play caller is confused also.
