What is protested game in baseball?
A protested game in baseball is a game in which a manager claims that the umpire has failed to properly interpret/implement the rules. Protests must be made before the next attempted play begins, and cannot be made for judgment calls such as ball and strike calls. If the league office determines that the umpire's error severely affected the outcome of the game, the game will be replayed starting at the play in question. Successful protests are extremely rare.
