New York Mets’ Howie Rose & Gary Cohen: Top Five Calls Of Last 20 Years

4. Cohen calls Endy Chavez‘s NLCS Miracle Catch

Oh, she’s a beauty.

While everyone chooses to remember the outcome of this game – strike three looking from Adam Wainwright to Carlos Beltran – I’ll choose to remember the miraculous season-saving catch from Endy Chavez.

Cohen said it himself, it could be the greatest catch in Mets franchise history.

It truly was, the greatest play that didn’t matter. Had New York gone on to win the game, Endy would be immortalized in Mets fame forever and ever. Poor, Endy.

In a Mets-Cardinals NLCS that showed the grit and guts of both teams, it all landed on a final win-or-go-home Game 7.

In the 6th innings, Chavez made a leap at the left field wall at Shea Stadium, caught a would-be Scott Rolen homer, then turned an inning-ending double play to leave the score at a 1-1 tie.

Jeremy Fialkow was born and raised in Miami, FLA, but currently studies at the University of Maryland. When he's not studying hard, he can be found supporting his sometimes hopeless NY teams: Knicks, Mets, Jets, and Isles. Your sympathy is appreciated.
