We know sports officials are human and can make errors, but OMG this is the worst.

Somehow, the plate umpire in this game missed the easiest call ever of a swinging strike. To make matters worse, the first base umpire missed it as well when they made the appeal.

There is no way that the call like that should be missed, especially on an appeal to a base umpire. It just makes the call on Armando Galarraga’s imperfect perfect game more acceptable.

Mistakes in sports happen all the time, but there is no way that this ball call is just a mistake. Watching this reminds me of a Manfred Mann song, Blinded By The Light.
