Still a Rick Monday fan, 30 years later

Milbarge from BTQ sent me a link to this story about the ceremony to honor Rick Monday at the ballpark in Houston. The article explains: "Monday was playing center field for the Chicago Cubs on April 25, 1976, at Dodger Stadium when he noticed two protesters kneeling on the grass in left-center, intending to burn the American flag. He immediately bolted toward them and snatched it away."

Also - "The Baseball Hall of Fame recently named Monday's quick-thinking act as one of the 100 Classic Moments in the history of the game." Certainly it is one my favorites, and I previously noted it here and here.
