    Pete Rose's denial he bet on baseball during Gray's interview! " I'm not going to admit to something that didn't happen". Well played, Pete. Oh, and Pete did dress up for that ceremony!!! Seems when the event honors him, he cleans up nice lol.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4fmEbgKeh0

    This play by Jeter has to make the list.

    I also encourage younger RZ members to go and check out some Keith Hernandez video. The best I've ever seen at first base.

    Hernandez was something special at first base. No doubt the best I have seen at that spot.

    This one is not bad either.

    Ordonez is the best defender I have ever seen. Ozzie was past his prime by the time I was old enough to really start paying attention and Ozzie, while not playing in the dark ages, didn't exactly play in the day of video for the early part of his career either.

    How good was Ordonez at defense? The guy was a no average, no power Major Leaguer who had a starting lineup figure. Career .600 OPS. Had a freaking action figure.

    I will admit freely that I own said action figure.

    Couldn't find it on it's own, but 1:09 is one that I never see anyone bring up but was flat out incredible.

    There was an Ordonez play on a high hopper with seemingly no chance at the fast runner and Rey gave the quickest release on a hard throw I've ever seen....but can't find it.

    He did all kinds of crazy stuff like that. Saw him once jump up on top of the CAL fence, hold himself there with his armpit braced on the wall, and reached about 4 feet beyond the fence to bring the ball back in. I've done all kinds of searches for it on the internet, but have never been able to find video of it. I think I might have it on an old VHS somewhere in the house. I used to take a bunch of random baseball stuff (like TWIB and the pregame stuff for Saturday game of the week) when I was a kid in the 70s and 80s.

    Way before my time, but you can't forget the Say Hey Kid:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dK6zPbkFnE
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
