When the ballclub's longtime PA voice got to "Greg Dobbs, third base," in the jammed Money Pit, Mets manager Willie Randolph was taking the ball from the left hand of Tom Glavine, who made the second first-inning exit of his Hall of Fame career. The first was 18 years ago.

Is that real???

yes it is.....Stockton and the camera operator thought it was an easy fly ball.( as did Yaz ) Hawk saw it coming about 2 seconds before it hit the net....may have been the first time he used that on the air....most Boston fans said something a little stronger :tongue:

As the 44-year-old southpaw headed to Citizens Bank Park (http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Citizens+Bank+Park?tid=informline) on Sunday morning, preparing to pitch the most important game of his life, he drove past a Little League (http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Little+League+Baseball+Inc.?tid=informline) field near the park.

"There were kids playing. If I hadn't been pitching, I might have stopped.

"I got those warm and fuzzy feelings. It made me appreciate what I was going to have a chance to do.
"To be able to win in this city where I grew up, to be able to stand in this clubhouse now, I'm at a loss for words," said Moyer
