Eagle,

This link took me to a Minerals Management Service ( .gov) address.


But, you are right-it's not about baseball!

Drat! For some reason I can't make the URL work.* Anyway, it was a video of Rick Monday grabbing the flag away from some guys in the outfield who were setting it on fire.

This link describes what happened.

Re: The Greatest Play in Baseball

My nominations would be...

1. Larry Doby getting hit in the head by a high fly ball to center field. Clueless Priceless.

2. Jimmy Pearsal getting assaulted in the outfield by a wayward fan; the guy ran up to him, kind of menacing, and Jimmy gave him a huge kick in the butt with the old-fashioned metal spikes leading the way. The guy went flying.

For you kids, Pearsal was not the most mentally stable player in the league.

Oh... and it has to be about baseball, it oughta include Don Larsen's world series perfect game.
