Contact: Tiffany Brown 517-335-6397



June 3, 2010
LANSING - Governor Jennifer M. Granholm today delivered on her promise to issue a proclamation declaring that Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga indeed pitched a perfect game last night against the Cleveland Indians.

The governor's proclamation follows:

"Whereas, pitching a perfect game is considered one of the crowning achievements of sport, attained only 20 times in the history of Major League Baseball; and,

"Whereas, a perfect game is defined as when a pitcher or pitchers retire each batter during the course of a game lasting at least nine innings; and,

"Whereas, Armando Galarraga retired all 27 players in order, a feat no Tigers pitcher has ever accomplished; and,

"Whereas, an umpire's missed call resulted in Armando Galarraga being charged a hit that clearly should have been an out; and,

"Whereas, the umpire graciously admitted his mistake after the game ended; and,

"Whereas, video replays unmistakably show Galarraga to have retired all batters;

"Now, Therefore, be it Resolved that I, Jennifer M. Granholm, governor of the state of Michigan, do hereby declare Armando Galarraga to have pitched a perfect game, and I join Tigers fans all across the globe in saluting his unassailable accomplishment - the first perfect game in Tigers history."
