It goes to show that some Mistakes are not forgivable. Last Night would of made the First time in Baseball History that one season had 3 perfect games.

Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga robbed of a perfect game against the Cleveland Indians With 2 outs in the 9th inning, what a shame.

That might be one of the worst calls I've ever seen in baseball, and that includes Little League.

I'm not sure I would have been so understanding, but the fact GM gave the pitcher a new Corvette probably reduced some of the sting. Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga gets 2010 Chevrolet Corvette from GM

It was a terrible call, but I have to hand it to Jim Joyce for manning up, apologizing and taking it on the chin. And, what a stand up guy in Galarraga for accepting it and not whining about what might be one of the few times a ballplayer would be fully justified in whining about anything.
