Bagged! Hall to get base, spikes of Galarraga gem
UNDATED – The Hall of Fame has bagged the key evidence from Armando Galarraga's stolen perfect game.
The Detroit Tigers have told the Hall they will donate the first-base bag, Galarraga's spikes and a ball from last week's near-miss at Comerica Park.
A blown call by umpire Jim Joyce at first base on what would've been the final out cost Galarraga the 21st perfect game in history. Galarraga's foot was on the base, but Joyce ruled that Cleveland's Jason Donald beat the play.
The Hall said Monday that the Tigers plan to soon send the items to the shrine in Cooperstown, N.Y.
