Miami senior Javi Salas threw a perfect game for the Hurricanes last night against the Villanova Wildcats. Even if the final score wasn't that dramatic—Miami won 17-0—there was another hook: Salas's little brother, Jorge, had the call for the Miami student radio station. It's awesome.
Chris Wittyngham, the sports director at WVUM, told us that he assigned Jorge to call this particular game far enough in advance that the starting pitcher was not known at the time. WVUM exclusively carried the game, so the only call of Javi Salas's perfect game was his brother's.
We're also including the final inning in its entirety because it's fun. Jorge can barely contain himself, but he still manages to make a decent call. He is basically laughing with joy by the time he finishes.
