My 2 cents. It looked like he was behind the wall, so he had the right to interfere. I also saw several hands, not just his, and I think he has a point. If he didn't reach over the "yellow line", it's not fan interference.

On the flip side, Betts glove was pushed and Betts had that ball dead to rights without the fans.

The rules say - no interference, but watching the play, Betts had the ball, so in the spirit of the game, I think they made the right call, but maybe not by the letter of the rules.

Mixed feelings from me. I'm curious what others think. It's not quite bartman 2.0. I don't think Astro fans can claim that without the interference, they'd have won and I think Astro fans can blame the ruling not the fan.
