Joyce calls its the biggest mistake in umpiring history, every baseball fan remembers the moment, 7 months ago, when Jim Joyce made a bad call that one of the runners was safe at first base. A bad call which meant Armando Galarraga the Detroit pitcher, was cheated out of history, as the holder of the 21st perfect game in baseball.


Jimmy tells the story of his life since and how he has struggled with his decision every day. This Sunday at 9pm EST on ESPN, he tries to make amends.

Amazing contrast from Jim Joyce to our old Swedish friend Martin Hannson
