Jim Leyland: Umpire apologized for missing call on Brandon Inge
Tom Gage / The Detroit News

Not that it does much good now, but they got it wrong -- and they know it.

In an interview Friday before a charity roast for Don Zimmer in Connecticut, Jim Leyland said he got a call from umpire Randy Marsh "three weeks into the offseason" to apologize for missing the one-out pitch with the bases loaded that hit Brandon Inge in the playoff game against Minnesota.

Had the umpires called it, the Tigers would have taken at least a one-run lead into the bottom of the 12th, the inning in which they lost the game to the Twins.

Oh well, too late now -- and Marsh may not like it that Leyland has gone public about the apology. But at least the umpires acknowledged that they missed a huge call.

Leyland also was interviewed Monday on WDFN, and about Johnny Damon, he said, "We have nothing going on at this particular time."
