Speaking of hitting home runs and fielding, these are two of the best moments in the history of baseball ............. especially if you are a NY Giants fan.

Yup! I get the “shot heard round the world”, but I think I’ve mentioned this before May’s “catch” wasn’t as great as the throw back in.....THAT WAS OUTSTANDING!Doby had to hold on the tag up.

Marc, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Mazeroski’s the only come from behind game 7 home run winner. Carter had one in game 6 of the Jays series. It’s funny but when we were kids playing we always mentally saw ourselves in a bottom of the ninth, game 7 situation when we batted.....who knew it was only done once.....1960.

That is exactly what Mays said about the catch and then the throw.

The score was tied 9-9 in the bottom of the 9th.

Well, April is almost done and some of my predictions need a little work. My teams selection for the post season were New York, Cleveland, Philadelphia and San Diego. SD needs some work. When you think about it, 162 games is a long season. Mentally it is difficult to think in game wins. I’ve always thought you need to win series....each team plays around 26 in a season. If you think of winning series a team can handle that...but if you have to get down to games.....that’s too much pressure.......

Well, think of the pressure the average fan has to go through to try to buy 2-4 tickets for his/her family at certain ball parks .............. all to watch third-string utility infielders earning $2 million a year. Ticket prices and salaries are way out of balance.
