It will probably lead to defining the rule a bit better. That's good. Back in the days (talking 70s and 80s), that ball would not have been an infield fly, among other reasons because the infielders would let the outfielders have it.
I didn't like the call, but it was borderline bad compared to some of the stuff that had been called in the playoffs over the last decade (the Twins/Yankees foul ball in 2009 comes to mind).
