Detroit Tigers Perfect Game Video?

Detroit Tigers's Gallaraga almost pulls a perfect game last night. Did you see the video? He was robbed!
If ever there was a convenient argument for expanding Major League Baseball's limited instant replay system, the egregious blown call by umpire Jim Joyce that prevented Armando Gallaraga's perfect game is it.

Instant replay shows that Donald was clearly out, and a correct call would have ended the game and sealed Detroit Tigers's Galaragga's perfect game, an achievement that would have put him in the history books as only the 21st pitcher ever to throw a perfect game.

Where can I find the video of the blown call?

Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga knows there's no crying in baseball. He lost the opportunity to become the 21st pitcher in Major League Baseball history to throw a perfect game.

Major League Baseball was still deciding Thursday morning whether to review the umpire's blown call that cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game.

The only negative point is, making video replay available regardless of the situation would slow down a sport that already is losing young fans because it moves too slow.

Baseball uses replays only in very limited circumstances. The point is, we have replays even if baseball wants to play ostrich, and they prove conclusively: Galarraga got the 27th guy out at first base. The game was over. He had a perfect game and they should recognize it.

Here's the video of the perfect game.
