The Day Rick Monday Saved the American Flag

The anti-American sentiment that was born in the 1960s counterculture movement extended into the 1970s.  American morale had never been lower; cities were decaying, unemployment was high, and there was an oil embargo.

Disillusioned Americans weren’t above desecrating the ‘Stars and Stripes’ in order to get their point across.  On March 25th, 1976 two such people were going to burn an American flag in the outfield at Dodger Stadium.  Chicago Cubs left fielder Rick Monday stepped in at the last minute to rescue the flag.

On the 30th anniversary of the event in 2006, Monday reflected on the day.
