In My View 6/2/2020: Armando Gallaraga’s near perfect game
This is the 10th anniversary of Armando Gallaraga’s near perfect game for the Detroit Tigers.
Umpire Jim Joyce made an erroneous call on a ground ball that would have ended the game and Gallaraga would have gone into historical baseball lore.
This was before replay. Replay would have overturned such a call.
And that’s why in the big picture replay is good for sports and would have made that game one for the ages.
