Yankees have been blessed with the execution of certain exciting and pivotal plays throughout its history. From Ruth's called shot and Bucky effing Dent and Aaron effing Boone, Derek Jeter's "The Play" vs. Oakland, and Jeffrey Maier. This year we have "The Catch".
Melky Cabrera's run saving and potentially game saving catch against Manny and the Sox solidified him as a potential new star in Pinstripes, a contributor to this plucky team of walking wounded, aging stars, and inexperienced kids filling big shoes. His enthusiasm stood out in the usually uber-proffesional Yankees locker room.
Update: Here's the best action photo I've found so far. Forgive the deletion of the other two. One is after the play, and a link to the other one exists within the thread.
