Baseball Tonight started a new feature tonight where they are going to rate the top 3 Web Gems of every major league team. They started with the Phillies tonight.
Cub nominations off the top of my head from recent years:
- Sammy's diving catch at Pittsburgh 2004
- Augie Ojeda's dive and throw to first to save a run at 3B in LA in 2003 (Prior Start)
- Patterson in Cincy last year robbing someone of a home run (Maddux start)
- DLee in a home game stabbing a ground ball after it took a big hop and was headed for his face (Kerry Wood start?) in 2004 against LA
- One that I vaguely remember from 1989 (I think) was Shawon Dunston diving for a ball in short left field and then throwing doubling someone off of first base to end a game against the Mets?
