Minor Leaguer Channels Willie Mays, Makes Ridiculous Catch
New Jersey Jackals center fielder Alonzo Harris may never reach the Majors, but he’s etched himself into the Viral Video Hall of Fame. Perhaps this fleeting glory wasn’t a lifelong dream like playing in the Bigs, but all press is good press.
The play is drawing obvious comparisons to Willie Mays’ over-the-shoulder grab in the 1954 World Series. The only difference, of course, is the stakes were slightly different compared to a midseason American Association game.
Also, there was little more ground to cover in the Polo Grounds than Yogi Berra Stadium.
Other than those pesky details, yeah, totally the same thing.
