Law School Class Submits Document To Make Case For Armando Galarraga’s Near Perfect Game
Back in 2010 Armando Galarraga threw a perfect game, until he didn’t. Armando Galarraga was denied a perfect game when an umpire erroneously ruled that the final batter, with two outs in the ninth inning, had beaten a throw to first base. The umpire and the batter both admitted the call was wrong, but Major League Baseball’s commissioner refused to overturn the umpire’s decision. A law school class at Monmouth University has now submitted an 82-page document to commissioner Rob Manfred to make a case to have Galarraga’s game added to the list of perfect games.
