Braves fans throw debris on field over controversial call in Cardinals favor, Updated with 'Replacement Umps' fan sign

10/5/12, "Iffy call against Braves sets off Turner Field fans," USA Today, Glier

"Bedlam reigned at Turner FIeld on Friday night when a questionable application of the infield fly rule resulted in trash tossed on the field and a 15-minute delay in the wild-card game pitting the Braves against the St. Louis Cardinals.
With the Braves trailing 6-3 in the bottom of the eighth inning, Andrelton Simmons was called out due to the infield fly rule on a ball he hit 65 feet into the outfield.
In an instant, a wave of blue beer cans came out of the Turner Field stands in a shower of disgust.
As soon as Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez got back to the dugout and Simmons was moved off first base, the crowd exploded in a frenzy of booing and throwing debris. Cardinals third baseman David Freese sprinted for the dugout to escape the torrent."...photo US Presswire. final 6-3 Cardinals
