Video Captures Fan Reaction in Real-Time To Jim Joyce’s Blown Call During Galarraga Perfect Game

This is why I love YouTube. All hand-farting videos aside. As far as I know this is the only video documenting a fan’s reaction as it happened.

If you didn’t already know, Armando Galarraga of the Detriot Tigers was screwed out of a perfect game thanks to a shoddy call by umpire Jim Joyce with two outs in the ninth inning. The real magic starts at about 3:15, but the whole video is worth watching for the build-up. This is likely the same scene captured in thousands, even millions of homes at the same time. The only difference? This reaction was captured for posterity.
