NEW YORK - Bud Selig won’t reverse an umpire’s admitted blown call that cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game.Read the rest here.
Selig says Major League Baseball will look at expanded replay and umpiring, but not the botched call Wednesday night.
Umpire Jim Joyce says he made a mistake on what would’ve been the final out in Detroit, where the Tigers beat Cleveland 3-0. The umpire personally apologized to Galarraga.
This had to be a really tough call. But I think it was the right one. Official stats will not record his perfect game. But that doesn't mean everyone doesn't know what happened. On a side note; both Galarraga and Joyce have been a class act through this whole thing.
