1954 HEADLINE: Willie Mays Makes The Greatest Catch In Baseball History!!!
On this day back in 1954, Willie Mays made ‘The Catch’.
Often considered to be the greatest defensive play in baseball history, this outstanding catch still gets ‘air-time’ every year. The fact that this catch happened in front of a national audience during the baseball playoffs only added to its legend.
One could certainly argue that more amazing catches have been made since, but this is ‘The Catch’ that still stands out amongst all others.
Happy Anniversary Mr. Mays!!!
