"I don't want to be trite here, but it really turned out to be a great story," Selig said. "You had a pitcher who acted just beautifully. You had an umpire who did what a lot of people in life should do. He told the truth -- 'I screwed up' -- and that was it. And I have undying admiration and respect for Jim Joyce, as I have told him.
You know what would have been a better story Mr. Selig? Galarraga getting credit for the 1st perfect game in Tigers history and you having the balls to make the right decision. I don't know why this makes me so mad, but Jesus, you are not opening Pandora's box by making a one time exception that has no impact on the win/loss column or any other statistic save the 28th AB. It's time to move on, but I will always hate Selig for this.
