« David Lehman Returns to the American Scholar with the Challenge That Started It All | Main | On Bedtime and Books [by Victoria Kelly] »

October 06, 2015


It would be great to have a hi-def clip of this. Too hard to tell in this grainy film, but Yogi does hold his glove at the plate, maybe a few inches from the tip of the plate; that is, not in front, aggressively reaching to tag JR. Maybe he got penalized for waiting and not pursuing the tag more forcefully. Also, maybe JR got his foot on the plate before Yogi got the tag down a little higher up on the leg (it seems). One of the great controversial calls in the history of the game! (And I would just like to take this opportunity to point out that Ed Armbrister did NOT interfere with Fisk in any way--dancing with Fisk was like dancing with a guy in clown shoes!)
