Well I'm sure you're going to see the replays. The final batter of the game Galarraga gets a ground ball to first, he goes to cover the bag, throw and step on the bag beats the runner by two steps. Jim Joyce (Ump) calls him safe. Galarraga retires the next batter for the "28th" out of his perfect game. If this is not appealed and granted as a perfect game this is a travesty to the sport. How do you miss a call like that? Galarraga may have snowconed it a bit, but even a snowcone counts. Unreal call. I'm livid for the Tigers, Galarraga, and their fans. Just simply unbelievable on what should have been the final out of a PERFECT GAME. How in the name of God do you even call safe if it was close, much less being beat by 2 steps?! That's utter classless by the ump. At least he stuck around and took his lashings from Leyland and the Tiger players. Galarraga didn't say a word, just a look of disbelief.
