Ron Swoboda

On this date in 1069, Ron Swoboda of the Mets makes one of the greatest catches in World Series history. Swoboda's sliding grab of Brooks Robinson's sinking liner helps the Mets defeat the Orioles 2-1 in Game 4 of the World Series.

"I see Brooks Robinson these days once or twice a year and never fail to thank him for not hitting it right to me."
