Mike Moustakas And Other Memorable MLB Playoff Catches [VIDEO]
By now, most of you have either seen or heard about Mike Moustakas' over the railing catch in Kansas City's 2-1 win over Baltimore in Game 3 of the ALCS. The Moose, as he's known by diehard Royals fans, had such great concentration on the Adams Jones' popup in foul territory, that the momentum took him over the rail and headfirst into the dugout club seats. It's one of those great plays that you just cannot get tired of watching.
The catch also brings back memories of some of the other great defensive plays in baseball history. Yankee fans will never get tired of this Derek Jeter memorable grab against the A's from the 2001 ALDS.
SPeaking of Jeter, this classic against the Red Sox is simply known as "The Dive." It might not have been in the postseason (actually happened July 1st 2004), but still one of the best ever.
Willie Mays was the original human highlight reel, and his over the shoulder catch off of Cleveland's Vic Wertz in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series will forever be known in baseball lore as "The Catch."
And oh, by the way, the Moustakas catch happened on the 11th anniversary to the day of the famed Steve Bartman catch in the Cubs Game 6 loss to the Florida Marlins in the 2003 NLCS.
