Opening Day is finally here!! Yay!! I am just sitting here anxiously awaiting the first pitch and wondering if the 2008 season will be one to remember. How about a quick look back one last time at the 2007 season.
What one play stands out most in your mind from the 2007 season? Preferably it should have something to do with the Reds, but that isn't a prerequisite.
I will offer this one to get things started. The play involved Ryan Freel (many of his plays are memorable in either a positive or negative manner). Having just crashed into the outfield fence in an attempt to make the catch, Freel is lying unconcious. That in and of itself would be noteworthy. But along comes Norris Hopper who clearly (to me anyway) picked up the ball and dropped it into Freel's glove. To be able to think that quickly still amazes me. I am sure under the same circumstances I would have picked the ball up off the ground and fired it back towards the infield.
Well played, Mr. Hopper.
