UPDATE: MLB Will Not Overturn Blown Galarraga Call
June 3 / Dan Fogarty / SportsGrid
UPDATE: Bud Selig said that although he will look into expanded instant replay options for the future, he won't reverse the call. This will likely disappoint many, and placate some who thought reversing an already-made call was a slippery slope (see this tweet from ESPN's Keith Law). Either way, not MLB's finest moment, but maybe it will lead to more accuracy in the future.
The MLB is still deliberating on whether or not to review Jim Joyce's blown call from Armando Galarraga's near-perfect game last night.
According to ESPN.com, a decision could come soon. One person who probably hopes the call is overturned is the guy who made it:
Joyce showed up to work Thursday in Detroit, looking as if he hadn't slept. He appreciated the outpouring of support from umpires, family and friends but lamented strangers lashing out at his wife and children.
"I wish my family was out of this," Joyce said, holding back tears as he spoke nearly two hours before the Cleveland Indians-Detroit Tigers series finale. "I wish they would direct it all to me. It's a big problem. My wife is a rock. My kids are very strong. They don't deserve this."
That's no good: hopefully the MLB will overturn the call and not give us a whole spiel about "tradition" and the "human element being a part of the game." Just change the call!
