More from 1969, Shea Stadium and the Bobster:
Baseball fans love to argue, but there's no denying that this catch by Ron Swoboda in the 4th game of the 1969 World Series ranks as one of the greatest catches ever. Ron wasn't known as a great fielder, but this play is almost beyond belief. It might have kept the Mets from losing the game and the World Series, as well.
This and the Agee catch are two of the greatest postseason plays ever, not just because of the athleticism involved but because of what they meant for the game. Sorry Endy. Try again next year.
And Nancy Seaver’s smart printed dress and hat ensemble may be one of the best player’s wives’ outfits ever!
