Perfect Game Broken Up By Horrendous Call With Two Out in the 9th

Major League Baseball just came one out away from having its third perfect game this year.  Detroit Tigers hurler Armando Galarraga had a perfect game going against the Cleveland Indians through 8 2/3 innings when Cleveland shortstop Jason Donald chopped a grounder toward first base.  The perfect game seemed like a certainty as Miguel Cabrera…Read More

The Mariners sent out a press release announcing Ken Griffey Jr.’s decision to retire from baseball on Wednesday afternoon.
