The type of catch you only see in movies.
I am partial to this one because of being a Mets fan. Chavez saved that playoff game
Same here, too bad we lost that game, AND series. It speaks to how sick of a catch it was because it holds no other importance
Yea, it was bittersweet. He kept us in that game, I thought for sure that would propel them to the WS
If you think about it, Swoboda in '69 should be held in higher regard than Endy. Equally as amazing catches, one in a WS winning game, the other in an elimination series
I wasn't born yet. Have only heard stories of that amazing team with just a few highlights. Around 1982 is when I became a full-fledged Met fan.
I wasn't either, but just seeing old tape of the catch is awesome
I always thought that if the ball goes over the fence, it is a homerun. Even if it is caught, if it goes out of the park, it is a homerun. I always thought that if you catch it you have to stay in the park.
I made a catch like W. Mays' in a softball game, .. but I have to admit I totally lost sight of the ball and just luckily stuck my glove out in front of me in the right place. (I never told the guys that though)
