I just watched the play on YouTube (thanks Chip).

Might be the worst call I’ve ever seen in my life. Even if the runner technically slid, it was a weak attempt at a slide. Pete could have argued that the runner was out of the baseline. The ball beat the runner by 3 or 4 steps, so it’s not like the catcher was blocking a slide. I really don’t know how the catcher could have handled it differently. No ump should ever call that given how far the ball is ahead of the runner.
