Everyone remembers the winning home runs by David Ortiz and Mark Bellhorn. Everyone will long remember the noble pitching efforts of Derek Lowe, Curt Schilling, Pedro Martinez, and Keith Foulke. But for the true baseball aficionado, some of the great memories of this wild ‘n crazy October ride will involve situations that were not climactic, involving people who are not marquee players. And some of the great memories will involve things done by, or happening to, players on the other team. For people who love the sport, these are the moments that separate baseball from all other games.
Situation 1: Yankees Game 4, ninth inning.
