RELIANCE ON procedure and protocol in a nutshell: the pitcher who was denied a perfect game by a blown call from an umpire.
It doesn’t matter that the truth is known with ontological certitude. What matters is that the procedures were followed to the letter of the rules.
I can only echo: the rules are an ass.
It would be no wonder if the whole population of the country were to rise in righteous outrage at this travesty. It is tragic that they do not.
