    as an aside, while searching for the freel throw, i went and wathced Griff's #500, and boy is Grande's call horrible: "Heeeeyyyy!" What a mook.

    I wish i'd found this top plays archive sooner. I'm now reliving my favorite Reds game I ever went to, Wily Mo Bobblehead night. ---->hey, Todd Holandsworth was in that highlight. Hehehehe

    Freel's catch was the best catch I have ever seen...at least through my Reds tinted glasses! :-) He is an awesome player with his hustle. Hopefully, his all out effort rubs off on everyone else. BTW...does anyone have a link to the video footage of Freel diving headfirst into the right field line stands at Dodger Stadium a few years ago (I think)? I can't remember if he caught the ball or not on that one, but that play was one of the best efforts I have ever seen.

    It was May 15, 2004, but the top plays archive doesn't have it

    An Otis Nixon play was one of the top three Braves plays in ESPN's 'every team's top plays' segment. It looked like the play you are describing. Was an incredible play! I'd love to see some old Eric Davis plays when they do the Reds' top plays. The Freel play should probably be up there too. Along with one he made at third base last year!

    Sorry, I see that others beat me to the Freel play at third. Thought I'd made it all the way through the thread before posting, but evidently not!

    One was Joe Morgan in the WS and the other, I'm blanking on the name, but it was a bobbling diving catch that ended up being barehanded.
    It was Glenn "Broken bat over shoulder" Braggs.
