New York Mets Wiki

The Catch plaque at Citi Field.

In Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS Endy Chavez made a catch over the left field wall at Shea Stadium against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The quote by SNY's Gary Cohen on the 660 WFAN when Chavez made the catch

"Edmonds at first and one out, and Pérez deals. Fastball hit in the air to left field, that's deep, back goes Chávez, back near the wall, leaping, and.... he made the catch! He took a home run away from Rolen! Trying to get back to first is Edmonds... he's doubled off! And the inning is over! Endy Chávez saves the day! He reached high over the left field wall, right in front of the visitors bullpen, and pulled back a two run homer! He went to the apex of his leap, and caught it in the webbing of his glove, with his elbow up against the fence. A miraculous play by Endy Chávez, and then Edmonds is doubled off first, and Óliver Pérez escapes the 6th inning. The play of the year, the play maybe of the franchise history, for Endy Chávez, and the inning is over."
