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.
