On Tuesday night, Miami Hurricanes pitcher Javi Salas threw only the second perfect game in school history, and 22nd ever in Division I baseball. What’s even more special about the historic evening is that Salas’ brother, Jorge, called the game for WVUM, the university’s student radio station.
Below is footage of Salas recording the final out, as well as audio of his brother announcing the deciding play. It’s hard to tell which brother is happier over the achievement.
Following the game, Jorge interviewed his brother in one of the giddiest, heart-warming radio segments you will ever hear.
With one in the booth and one on the field, and the utter joy in Jorge’s voice, this moment is reminiscent of Ned Jarrett coaching his son Dale to the 1993 Daytona 500 victory from the broadcast booth.
It’s one of those goose bump-inducing moments that only sports can provide.
