Should Major League Baseball Reverse the Bad Call That Ruined Pitcher Armando Galarraga's Perfect Game?

What would have been the 21st perfect game in baseball's history was stolen last night by one bad call.

The Detroit Tigers made it all the way to the ninth inning in their game against the Cleveland Indians, with pitcher Armando Galarraga sending 24 consecutive batters back to the bench.

In the ninth inning, the Tigers got two outs -- one with a stunning catch by outfielder Austin Jackson -- and needed just one more to clinch the perfect game.

Then, umpire Jim Joyce called Jason Donald safe at first base, though the Indian was clearly out.

After looking at the replay after the game, Joyce admitted that he blew the call.

Through tears, Joyce said that he "cost the kid a perfect game" and he later hugged Galarraga and apologized.

The bad call is reigniting debate about instant replay in baseball, and some argue that the league should reverse Joyce's decision.
