Someone called into the Score just a bit ago to mention that the reason there were no fan problems with Uribe's foul ball catch (which would have been legal)....

Those were all Sox fans.

Apparently some church secured a bunch of those seats together.

If that's true... Wow. Fate.

I'm also surprised the fans would think not to interfere with it. As much crap as Bartman got, I thought we'd all probably do the same but I guess not. Impressive.

If they were houston fans, then they learned nothing from the Bartman incident.


If they were Sox fans........wow.

Haha, we truly have the smartest fans

Interference or not, an unbelivable catch, especially with what's at stake, Derek who?

First of all, with the situation and the game it came in, that is the greatest defensive play I have ever seen live (I'm not old enough to have witness the Willie Mays catch).

I don't know whether or not those were Sox fans. The biggest reason I think they moved out of the way was that Uribe was running at them full speed. They probably thought they were gonna get decked. It is much different from the Bartman play in that he was running full speed with his back to the infield and not drifting to the side and leaping harmlessly at a wall. There was no risk of Bartman getting leveled by Moist-hands diving into the stands.

Heh. Just another chapter in the strange saga that was the 2005 White Sox.

But the real reason Uribe didn't encounter any problems is because he was on a mission from GOD and so were we. :cool:

That play sure does beat the one earlier in the season that started the wonderful 17-game stretch that preserved the lead in Detroit.

Hawk and DJ at the time said that that was the best play of the year simply because of the situation it came in.

It's a nice story, but I see a lot of stars on those caps...

No Sox fans there. It was a nice story, though. What I do see is that the seats are as low or lower than the playing field and long armed Uribe outreached the fans, who, my TIVO says, had gloves outstretched for the ball coming down into the stands. Bartman had the advantage of being 10 feet higher than Alou.

Does Vizquel make the play?

If Uribe had fell all the way into the stands, I know the runner on second gets to advance. Would he have been awarded 3rd or home?

Either way, it was heads up for Juan to stay on top of the wall, and then to get up as soon as possible.

He would have been awarded 3rd only.
