Bad Call: Blown Call Robs Tigers Pitcher of Perfect Game Against the Indians

DETRIOT, MI - The world of baseball is up in arms over one of the worst umpire calls in the history of the game Wednesday night.

Detroit Tiger fans were exhausted with angst as they poured out of the game disgusted over how the only perfect game in the team's 116 year was stolen by first base umpire Jim Joyce.

With only one out left in the last inning, Armando Galarraga was well on his way to becoming only the 21st pitcher in Major League Baseball history to throw a perfect game.

Instead, Joyce missed an out call at first base by at least a foot.

He later apologized to Galarraga and admitted he made the wrong call.
