Today is the 5th anniversary of former Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga's almost perfect game.

The game was against the Cleveland Indians.  The Tigers were leading 3-0 and there were 2 outs in the Top of the 9th.  A ground ball from the bat of Jason Donald was clearly an out but umpire Jim Joyce called him safe.

Clearly one of the great one game pitching performances in baseball history that, of course, will forever be known for that bad call.

Galarraga was never the same and bounced around over the past few years. He is now out of baseball.  Being a Tigers fan still a bitter feeling, but one of those baseball moments that I will never forget.
