FLASHBACK: Best Play in Baseball History Happened 40 Years Ago Today


What some call the best play in baseball history happened 40 years ago today.

It wasn't a grand slam at the bottom of the ninth with two outs, an unassisted triple play, or a clutch over-the-fence catch.

On this day, in 1976, two people jumped onto the field at Dodger Stadium with an American flag.

Fans entering into the field of play isn't entirely uncommon, especially after a few too many brews and a steady dose of summer sun.

But this time was different. As the two individuals entered the field, it became clear they were attempting to burn the American flag.

Cubs center fielder Rick Monday saw what was happening and immediately jumped into action.

His bold move was caught on video. Watch it, and you'll see why it's considered one of the best plays in baseball history.
