If you’re a baseball fan, you’ve probably heard all about Jim Joyce’s horrendous call that cost Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game. It would have been just the 21st perfect game in Major League Baseball history. The worst part about this baseball tragedy was that the perfect game was a sure thing! There were two outs in the ninth inning when Galarraga induced a ground ball to first and everyone in the park and watching on television knew that would represent the final out of a perfect game. And that’s when Joyce became the focus of the game by calling the runner, Jason Donald, safe.
