Jim Joyce In Tears As Armando Galarraga Delivers Lineup Card

Before today's Tigers-Indians game there was a great moment at home plate with umpire Jim Joyce and Armando Galarraga. Just as Jim Leyland promised this morning, Galarraga delivered the lineup card to Joyce, who shook hands with the Tigers pitcher and patted him on the back before wiping away tears.

When Joyce was announced as today's home-plate umpire over the PA system, there were quite a few boos. Still, many decided to cheer Joyce, and a couple fans even shook his hand as he came out of the tunnel behind home plate.
