Umpire Jim JoyceThis week’s guest is Jim Joyce, a former major-league umpire from 1987 to 2016. Joyce is the co-author of Nobody’s Perfect: Two Men, One Call, and a Game for Baseball History with pitcher Armando Galarraga, whose near-perfect game on June 2, 2010, became infamous after Joyce admitted to missing a call in the ninth inning. Joyce called more than 3,000 games during his 30-year career, including three World Series (1999, 2001, 2013) and three All-Star Games (1994, 2001, 2012).

What’s Rob Reading?

Jackie Robinson Museum in New York City

“A Visit to the Jackie Robinson Museum”
By Paul Lukas, Uni Watch

“Here’s something you might not be aware of: There’s a new museum in New York City devoted to Jackie Robinson. If that’s news to you, my hunch is that you’re not alone. Although the museum opened last September, it’s gotten relatively little publicity or promotion, at least that this New Yorker has seen. One issue may be that the museum project was first announced way back in 2008 but was subject to endless delays caused by the Great Recession, Hurricane Sandy, the pandemic, and more, all of which may have made the museum seem like yesterday’s news at best, hopelessly snakebitten at worst. I’ve been meaning to check out the museum since it opened and finally did so last week.”
