    The Bartman incident should not even BE on this list. Chicago finally won a WS. The big mistake in that game was the star Shortstop screwing up a sure fire double play and the stupid manager mismanaging the inning and not coming out to try to calm down everyone. A better choice than the Bartman incident would have been the Don Donkenger screw up in the 1985 WS.

    mojo what the hell... 'sportmansship? after joyce called it wrong! on purpose???? that was a perfect game... sorry sportmans ship does not count when they call it imperfect'. this is a racist ump being racist on a perfectly thrown game by a latin pitcher. unreal. who cares what joyce says afterwards. he knew what he was doing. more than 20 years umping... he was favoring bets. that racist jerk.

    Baggio missing the penalty against Brazil is the biggest mistake of all time. At the time both countries were 3 times world champions, battling to see who would win Cup n#4 and be alone at the top of the world, and it was the first time that a World Cup was decided with penalty kicks. The entire planet was watching, including a lot of americans, cause the 94 World Cup happened in the US

    Buckner and Bartman don't deserve this flack because bigger mistakes occurred before Buckner's miss, and after Bartman's catch. Escobar should be number one simply for the tragedy that happened afterwards, and the Chris Webber TO has been stricken from record, so it never happened.

    Escobar wasnt killed for his own goal. He was killed becuase he picked a fight with the wrong person. The drug cartel bodyguard was pissed off with him for completely different reasons that had nothing to do with the own goal and he shot and killed Escobar. The only reason the myth exists that he shot Escobar for the own goal is becuase the cartel guy simply used that own-goal situation as an insult by the time they were already pissed off with each other. So saying that Escobar died for scoring an own goal is bullshit and misleading. It bothers me everytime the subject comes up becuase people always believe the myth. You can tell WatchMojo doesnt do any research, and now more people are going to believe the myth

    I was one of the millions watch Mr. Galarraga’s stolen perfect game. He was so excited as he raced to first, certain (as the rest of us were) that he had beaten the runner. When Joyce called the runner safe, Galarraga gave a “you’ve got to be kidding” look. Most other pitchers would have thrown a tantrum. His grace, good sportsmanship (and the usually superb Joyce’s tearful realization of his blown call) made them both winners in my book. I can still see Miggie Cabrerra clutching his head in disbelief. It will always be the most vivid perfect game in my eyes.
