It was the correct call.

Amazing initial fielding play to get the play at the plate too. Holding it with two outs they would've had a decent chance to get out of the inning, but throwing the ball around like it's little league is fun too.

his call at armando's expense impacted one player. ultimately it did not decide the game.

his after the game reaction showed, in my mind a man that knew he made a mistake. didn't try to shrug off or deny that mistake.

he, by all appearances was sincere in his horror over his own mistake, and in his apology.

in my humble opinion, both Galaraga's reaction to that blown call, and Joyce's after the game taking responsibility for his own mistake are two pinnacle examples in sports of doing the right thing.

Middlebrooks and/or Peavey crying after the Boston game about that obstruction call, as well as bench clearing to argue over it are only a small part of what's wrong with pro sports today.
