Wow what a night in sports, first off if not the greatest the top 3 greatest baseball players ever in the game retired last night. A guy I have been watching for 22 years, what an amazing career. He literally changed the way centerfield was played. Not only was he one of the greatest defensive centerfielders, but his swing was so sweet. The best thing about it he did it the right way. When I say that I mean, no steroids. He didnt cheat like Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Mark Mcgwire, Rafael Palmero, or Alex Rodriguez just to name a few. If not for injuries he would have been the homerun king and I dont think anyone would hae been able to tough his record. Ever since I was a kid playing baseball I always wanted to be like Ken Griffery Jr, why not with his amazing catches, and silky smooth swing. Check out these jaw dropping catches narrated by the kid himself, simply amazing
The other part of the night was why baseball should have instant replay for every play. Amazing Armando Gallaraga for the Detroit Tigers has a chance to get in the record books by throwing a perfect game. 1 out to go grounder by second base throws to Gallaraga covering he was clearly out and the umpire called him safe. The worst call ever and Gallaraga gets cheated of a perfect game, ive never seen something like this. I guess thats why baseball is such a great game cause you never know what can happen on a given night. Go Woodchucks tonight, opening night and im throwing out the first pitch see you at Athletic Park!!
