Hey, at least Galarraga got a car

Armando Galarraga may not have gotten a perfect game, but he got a nice consolation prize: a cherry-red Corvette, given to him by General Motors just before the game today in recognition of his “excellence on the field and for his
professionalism & sportsmanship.”
  I have two questions:

(1) Since the bailout, does this mean that we’re all unwittingly subsidizing Major League Baseball; and

(2) If Selig overturns the call does Armando have to give the car back?
