I've always been partial to Podsednik snagging a fly ball in the stands at Yankee Stadium while getting punched in the face by one of the fans.

There was no such play.

I guess it's debatable whether the fan was really angling to smack Pods or if he was trying to make an awkward stab at the ball...I guess...

Be nice if there was a picture to record this happening in history, because I've never seen anything of the such.

It's been gone over to death around these parts. The guy didn't even touch him.

He's right. We've had 3 threads over this and have seen the video. The picture was just taken at an angle where the depth is somehow distorted. The guy never touched Pods.

He may have touched him (I think that was still up for debate). But it was pretty clear it was not intentional and not a punch in the sense of, "I am going to punch this dude on purpose."
