The Greatest Play in Baseball - Rick Monday Saves US Flag

Baseball fan or not... this is a great story:

On April 25, 1976 at Dodger Stadium, Rick Monday of the Chicago Cubs, grabbed and secured the American flag from two protesters attempting to burn our flag in the middle of the playing field. It was an outstanding display of American Patriotism.


  1. I remember when this happened and felt proud to be an American. Our Armed Services are fighting so that we Americans can protest what we don't agree with but to burn an American flag is way wrong. I get upset when people talk or won't remove their hats when they play the National Anthem.

  2. my heart goes out to the family of Michael Johnson. He was a good man and a close friend and he will never be forgotten . He was very special to me. He became not only a friend, but more. I will miss him dearly.
    he will always hold a special place in my heart.
