It wasn't even that close. What a horrible call.

I think that is the one time in baseball you're allowed to cry.

If I'm his teammate, I get thrown out of the game there. I don't know how the rest of the team kept their composure.

Zito is God wrote:Unreal. I honestly feel emotionally sorry for Gallaraga. I will admit he also handled the call better than anyone ever expected. He simply smiled and went back to the mound. I also am officially a fan of Miguel Cabrera for how he was jawing with the umpire after the call, thats a true teammate, I was really hoping he would get thrown out so it would start a big thing.

This could have been #21 in baseball history, instead it was just a very good game. Its sad that this could have carried Gallaraga's career and now its just a good game, I really do feel sorry for him.

I was pretty much coming to post this word-for-word. Galarraga deserves a legacy and I sincerely hope he gets some sort of memorabilia into Cooperstown (like the other perfect games have).
