    The moment from the cartoon that I find the most memorable is when Bugs strikes out three players with one pitch, using his “slow ball”.Report

      My confession: my reaction to the catch from the spire of the Umpire State Building is that Bugs caught the ball in his cap, which is illegal and an automatic triple. I am not proud of this response.Report

    The other interesting thing about that play was that the runner on first was awarded second base.

    Even though Rizzo got the ball back in play to prevent the runner from tagging, because he went into the stands to make the play, all the runners are entitled to a base. In different circumstances, the play could have been a net negative.Report
