Former Texas Rangers Pitcher Armando Galarraga Gets Hosed Out of Perfect Game

If you follow sports at all, you are completely aware of Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga losing his perfect game on the final out thanks to an awful — and admittedly incorrect — call by umpire (and amazing writer) Jim Joyce. No news. But watch the video below, shot from the stands, simply for the sound: the elation that the perfect game has been achieved, immediately turning into abject horror and disgust. At least he’s not a Texas Ranger anymore. Though I would have been interested to see what Lone Star Ball had to say.
