There have been many fantastic plays throughout the years. Those plays have made baseball America’s favorite past time. You have seen highlights of guys running through walls to make a catch, falling over the dugout railing, big hits that surprised everyone and more. But the greatest play in baseball did not take place with the ball live. We go back to 1976 where 35 years ago to this day, Rick Monday did something that will make any American proud. Watch it for yourself:
It’s unfortunate that we have lost some of that pride. You cannot display your pride in the “free” country, without restrictions. I, for one, am proud to be an American. Thank you, Mr. Monday, for taking a risk and saving the flag. Now that, is a hero.
