The SS waved off Holiday and set under the ball, albiet in an incorrect position. The umpire is going to see that and call the infield fly every time.
Not quite. It has to be in a place that the infielder can reach with "ordinary effort," on a play ordinarily handled by that position. The easiest play on that ball should have been by the left fielder. Regardless, the umpire is supposed to call infield fly immediately.
