Not to disagree that it could be overturned, but none of those listed were changed because of an ump's call.
They were all changed from no hitters to not no hitters because either 9 innings weren't pitched or the game lasted longer than the 9 innings of no hit ball pitched. I actually agree with all the instances listed on that site. It shouldn't be a legitimate no hitter unless you complete at least 9 innings and there are no hits at the time the game ends.

If replay is instituted how would it work? Why not just workout a system to get rid of umpires completely since they have become such a liability. If he wants a perfect game go out and repeat the performance. Halladay i would say benefited from some sketchy strikeouts that could have been walks. It goes both ways. Should MLB go back and review the ball/strikes on him to see if a guy really should have been walked?
Balls and strikes can never be argued, and will never be subject to replay.
By nature, the determination of pitch location is subjective. Whether a player is out or safe is not really the same. It's one thing or the other, whereas there is no physical definition of the strike zone. I don't think anyone would make an issue of this.
I was at the game where he got his first Major League hit, a double against Oakland. I've watched his entire career. I knew this is why he went back to Seattle, but this isn't how I envisioned it ending. I'm honestly a bit sad right now. Thanks for all the memories Ken.
Yeah, I read about it yesterday. What I love most about Griffey is that in this whole "steroid era" mess, his name never came up.
In 1989, on a trip to Bakersfield, I went into a card shop and saw this cool baseball card. The shop owner said it was the first card from a new card company called Upper deck. Card #1 was this rookie phenom named Ken Griffey Jr. I bought the card for 3 bucks. The next week my best friend, Jeremy, had a birthday party. Knowing we were both avid card collectors, the card became a present. Who knew.
