Jim Wolf Calls Perfect Game

Kudos to Jim Wolf, brother of former Dodger Randy, on calling Dallas Braden’s perfect game yesterday. There were no controversial calls, and the authority & poise shown by Wolf – especially in the ninth inning on a couple of borderline pitches – was to be commended. Like his brother, Wolf hails from El Camino Real HS in West Hills, CA.
