That is an amazing catch by Longoria. Here's the great one that I remember, in the 1969 World Series.

Without looking its one of Swaboda's grass-scrapers. I remember this directly from the day. And Al Weiss's HR. I used to catch at least 2 home game a year from '77 to '04 at Shea. Usually a car to train transfer at Springdale, CT (2 mi. off Merritt Pkwy).

I would also rank Mays's catch against Vic Wertz in '54 World Series. Its not only the catch, but the throw in one motion to keep the runner from advancing. Thing of beauty baseball-wise.

That is the exact catch that came to mind when I saw this thread's title yesterday. Maybe that relates to being a geezer.

Pretty sure this isnít real. Iíve seen it before with a bunch of other NFL ones that donít look real.
