Perfection

Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga was more than perfect tonight. He got his 27th out to complete a perfect game–only to have the umpire blow the call, as instant reply makes clear. Then he went back to the mound and got the 28th out. Major League Baseball needs to make this right and give Galarraga a perfect game in the record books.
