A Baxter Blast
Last August 30th in Philadelphia, Mike Baxter helped get the Mets off to a fast start with a leadoff home run off Kyle Kendrick. Let's focus on where the ball landed in the right field seats. Do you see the guy with outspread arms cheering? Wearing a Mets cap and shirt, he's clearly a fan of the fellows from Flushing. And who caught the ball? Apparently, the person with the horizonally striped tee shirt -- see how it's about to drop into his grasp.
Finally, check out Phillies right fielder Michael Martinez (#7), watching helplessly as Baxter's ball carries well beyond the field.
