They an amendment that there putting in place to reverse the call. Jim Joyce the umpire apologised to Galaraga after he saw the replay, this is something that never happens. So they were both good sports about it and I have a greater respect for both!!!
That was a surprise honestly. I thought Donald was out and Detroit had a perfect game. At least the umpire did admit he was wrong unlike other ones. They probably wouldn't admit no matter how many times they saw it.
Yes, the call was blown. But that is the nature of the game if not all of sports. Is it fair? Of course not. But human failings are part of competing. This would be a great hub: "The impact of blown calls on sports." Olympic runners have fallen, passes are dropped, skiiers fall at the finish only to lose. This is sports. But this is also the Era of the Bailout. Let's see, who has been bailed out in the past 16 months? Banks, Wall Street, big business, homeowners, even entire countries (Greece). And now, it appears, baseball pitchers. The call should stand and be accepted as the nature of the game. We all know it was a bad call. Only the record books and succeeding generations of fans won't know. So here's what we do. Put an asterisk after the record book entry indicating it could have been a perfect game but for human error. We've all made them. Except for me.
