Jim Joyce scheduled to be the home plate umpire for Armando Galarraga's start tomorrow

Sep 9, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

Barring a change in the umpiring schedule, Jim Joyce is slated to be behind the plate for Armando Galarraga’s start tomorrow against the Orioles.
Joyce was working first base when he infamously blew the call that would have given Galarraga a perfect game on June 2. Joyce immediately and emotionally admitted his mistake, Galarraga displayed a ton of kindness in dealing with the entire situation, and the two later appeared together at the ESPY awards, but Joyce calling balls and strikes would still be pretty interesting.
Galarraga showed his usual class when asked yesterday about the possibility, saying: “It’s going to happen, anyway, sooner or later. It’ll be OK. He’ll do his job. I’ll do my job.”

    Let’s just say a huge strike zone is in Galarraga’s future.
