Beth: Loving Baseball For Its Moments

RE: Armando Galaraga’s perfect game can be saved/Mike Lupica, New York Daily News

But then last night, there was another moment as well (thanks to Mike Lupica for spelling it out here). It was the moment that the pitcher turned to the ump who made the wrong call and - smiled at him. It was an awkward smile, followed by a pulling of the cap and a return to the mound, to finish a game that ought to have been finished already. But that smile - that grace, to react with a smile and not a shout - was a moment in time that makes baseball something else - reminds me that baseball is a game of moments, of opportunities to play above and beyond just the mechanics of the game/Beth Bollinger, Accidental Rabbit Trails. More here.

Question: Have you witnessed another example of someone reacting to extreme disappointment with the grace shown by Detroit pitcher Armando Galaraga?
