Credit Armando Galarraga a Perfect Game

This petition had 332 supporters

In a game between Detroit Tigers and the Cleveland Indians held on June 2, 2010,  a blown call changed the lives of two men forever. Pitcher Armando Galarraga was one out from becoming the owner of baseball's 21st perfect Game. A grounder hit by Indians' Jason Donald should have ended the game.

Unfortunately, umpire Jim Joyce saw it incorrectly, and as he said "kicked the call," causing shock, disbelief anger, tears and sportsmanship. After review, Joyce reached out to Galarraga to apologize, and though it was accepted by him (great display of sportsmanship), others saw it differently. Galarraga, to this day, was never awarded the perfect game he deserved.

I am asking you to join me and give Armando Galaraga the Perfect Game he earned and to forgive Jim Joyce.
