Hero Umpire: Jim Joyce saves a Diamondbacks employee’s life

If anyone was still holding the Armando Galarraga stuff against Jim Joyce, I believe the ledger is more than balanced by now. Scott Miller of CBS reports:

Joyce administered CPR to a Diamondbacks’ game-day employee 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.

Miller has the whole story. The woman is now apparently stable. And Jim Joyce -- widely considered to be one of the best umps in the business, his one night notwithstanding -- can add hero to the title as well.
