Rather than some anonymous pitcher? YES! Of course I would. People will always remember Haddix and Gallaraga despite the fact that neither were star players. Len Barker threw a perfect game. And while that's cool for Len Barker, I had to look it up on wikipedia. I only have the vaguest recollections of him. Tom Browning threw one, and he was a nice pitcher, but he's been largely forgotten.
Totally agree. No one will know who Philip Humber is in a few years.
Also, I disagree about Merkle's Boner being a huge screw-up. The clubhouse in the first Polo Grounds was beyond centerfield. After games, the fans always rushed the field, so Merkle and the other Giants had the force of habit to sprint to the clubhouse immediately when the game ended to avoid being swarmed by spectators. Merkle saw the winning run step on the plate, and then he went straight for the clubhouse. Did he frick up? Yeah, but I think he gets a little too much blame for it.
You should read some of the accounts of The Glory of their Times
for firsthand tales by some of the players. Very interesting read regardless.
