Yesterday, Armando Galarraga pitched a perfect game. Unfortunately, Jim Joyce disagreed.
(sorry about the talking heads. it seems that MLB doesn't take kindly to people posting aired segments on youtube : \ )
To put this in perspective, more people have orbited the moon than thrown perfect games. In 140 plus years of professional baseball in the United States, only 20 perfect games have been thrown. To throw a perfect game is the ultimate feat in Baseball.
This perfect game would have been the first in the 106 year history of the Detroit Tigers. It should have been. But it wasn't do to a horrible call. Easily (considering the historical implications) the worst call in the history of Baseball.
So, just thought I'd post my thoughts. Surely I can't be the only baseball fan here who's rather upset at this event.
