I think the ball would not have taken such a redirection as it did if it had hit the yellow padding at the top of the wall. But as you stated it was difficult to determine. Even if a replay was permitted as in NFL, no conclusive evidence would have allowed a change in the umpire's call.
May get a thread ticket from the topic police. I lived in Denver too from the Summer of 1983 through 1984 while getting a Masters at DU. They did not have a baseball team in the majors when I was there. Probably would have gone to one if they had. Do not miss the snow all that much from Denver but still miss the Rocky Mountains.
