The Rick Monday Moment
by

When I was growing up in the late seventies and early eighties, some of my best nights were spent watching baseball on television with my dad.  We were great Braves fans, but they tended to be irrelevant, so we also rooted for the Dodgers.  

One evening, the Dodgers put Rick Monday into a game in the late innings as a pinch hitter.  When his presence became known, the crowd let out a great cheer.  I was surprised.  I didn’t know anything about Rick Monday.  He wasn’t one of the stars whose stats I memorized.

My dad told me about the time Rick Monday saved the U.S. flag from being burned by radicals in the outfield.  I never had a chance to see it until now.  Thanks to Francis Beckwith at Southern Appeal for linking to this great little video.
