Umpire Jim Joyce is famous all over again, this time for a very good call.
You never know when the big moments will arrive, and so it was that
veteran umpire Jim Joyce made his biggest call of the season ... roughly
90 minutes before the Marlins-Diamondbacks game started in Arizona on Monday night.
Joyce administered CPR to a Diamondbacks' game-day employee named Jayne Powers in a tunnel leading to the umpires' dressing room minutes on his way into the ballpark Monday, saving her life in a moment nobody who was in the vicinity at Chase Field will soon forget.
Yes, you have heard his name before:
And since we are waxing nostalgic, let's remember that Tiger's pitcher Armando Galarraga deserves a Hall of Fame plaque for his sportsmanlike reaction to the debacle. That will be his best shot for the Hall, so far anyway.
