The Outfield
"He hits a high fly ball to center field."
"He slaps a base hit down the left field line."
"He blasts a line drive into the right field seats."
The Outfield.
Where hits, home runs and great catches happen.
The Outfield.
Where immortals played.
The Babe calling his shot into the Wrigley Field bleachers.
Mickey Mantle belting a homer out of Griffith Stadium into a backyard.
Hank Aaron crushing home run number 715 into the left field bullpen.
Ted Williams playing a ball off the Green Monster.
Billy Williams hitting a line drive into the Wrigley Field ivy.
Willie Mays making "The Catch" in the 1954 World Series.
Willie Stargell hitting a mammoth home run at Three Rivers Stadium.
Frank Robinson blasting a ball into the Memorial Stadium parking lot.
Joe DiMaggio pulling a double into Yankee Stadium's vast left field.
The immortal outfield trio of Jim Rice, Fred Lynn and Dwight Evans.
Carl Yastrzemski and Dave Winfield.
Greg Luzinski and Lou Brock.
Rickey Henderson and Ken Griffey, Jr.
Al Kaline, Roberto Clemente and Tony Gwynn.
Don Baylor, Willie McGee and Vada Pinson.
Lefthanders, righthanders, switch hitters.
Home run hitters, contact hitters and base stealers.
All of this baseball history and immortality in one big patch of grass.
The Outfield.
