The Armando Galarraga Link Page

For interested parties, here is a list of news stories, audio clips, and video clips related to Armando Galarraga’s 28-out perfect game from June 2, 2010. This is an incomplete list (I’ve scoured as much as time will allow me, even finding stuff in shows I don’t watch or like, such as “The View,” but I know I didn’t get everything; for instance, I know Galarraga was on “The Early Show” but I can’t find video of it), and it will be in the order in which I found the links, not in chronological order (I will try to make note of the date of the story or interview wherever possible). Also, there are certain video or audio clips that I just can’t link to because there is no permanent link. I will update this page as I find more stuff, and if you find something that is not on this page, please leave a link in the comments. Please let me know if a link is broken as well.

    Thanks for the great info. I too was looking for the same info and videos about Galarraga for one of my blog readers. Came across your site and I cannot compete with that, so I posted a link on my blog to this page for her. Thanks, keep up the good work.
