Luckily for Fox, there are multiple cameras in every stadium and replay exists, because this was nearly catastrophic. Koji Uehara’s game-winning pickoff of Kolten Wong was completely missed in real time.
Amanda Rykoff captured a Vine of the broadcast. Fox’s cameras pan to the crowd and then quickly to first base just as Wong is being tagged out.
