One of the greatest baseball stories in recent history is the grace shown by both pitcher Armando Gallaraga and umpire Jim Joyce after a mistaken call at first base on the apparent 27th out prevented Gallaraga from earning a deserved perfect game on June 2, 2010, and entering his name in history. Joyce immediately and repeatedly accepted blame and apologized to the pitcher, and both earned worldwide praise for their handling of the difficult situation. Joyce is now retired from baseball but turned to the publishing world, writing (along with Gallaraga) the book Nobody's Perfect: Two Men, One Call, and a Game for Baseball History. The book is signed by Joyce as well, so bid high and see what you can learn from this tale of mistakes, forgiveness, and celebration. This item is not authenticated by Major League Baseball. UMPS CARE Charities will provide a certificate of authenticity for the winning bidder.
