Clip Of The Day: Kevin Mitchell’s Barehanded Catch

When Kevin Mitchell caught a fly ball barehanded, it was one of the most memorable plays in baseball history.

Hyperbole? Maybe, maybe not.

But we remember it so vividly. Since it happened in 1987, off the bat of Ozzie Smith (who had his own barehanded prowess), Mitchell’s catch came to define that era of Giants baseball. Along with Jeffrey Leonard running around the bases with “one-flap” down, The Thrill’s debut against Nolan Ryan and the Earthquake, it remains a visual that we’ll never forget. They even made a bobble head about it.
