Jim Joyce's perfect game blown call, Armando Galarraga's grace and what Bud Selig should do

armando-galarraga-perfect-game.jpgWednesday, June 2 will forever be in baseball fans' minds as the night we saw Detroit Tigers' pitcher Armando Galarraga throw the third perfect game inside of a month. It would have been only the 21st perfecto thrown in 135 years of baseball. It's considered one of the rarest feats in all of sports. To have two perfect games thrown in the same season is remarkable, let alone three thrown in the span of 25 days.

And after first base umpire Jim Joyce blew the call on what would have been the 27th out, as fans booed and the announcers went crazy, what did pitcher Armando Galarraga do? He smiled, readjusted his cap and headed back to the mound to finish the game. It brings tears to our eyes just thinking about it.
