A Catch For The Ages
Up until now, there's probably two catches that stand out in sports history; Montana to Clark and the Willie Mays catch. What made these catches so unbelievably memorable wasn't their flash but their once-in-a-lifetime accomplishment that went against all odds. Nobody had ever seen these two types of plays accomplished before or since. They're now part of what we in sports like to call "Legendary Moments."
Today we might have witnessed a catch that ranks close to the level of legendary. Texas Ranges outfielder, Gary Matthews, Jr., made the most improbable catch of the season in robbing Houston Astros Mike Lamb of a home run. When you watch this catch, don't just watch it once but view it no less than three times to get a full dose of Matthew's feat.
