Then John Flaherty rifled the game-winning hit down the left-field line for the victory!!!
The 500th RBI I have seen (Clark); The 50th RBI of Jorge Posada I have seen

"Greatest catch I've ever seen. It was unbelievable. He's just so unselfish. He put his body in a compromising spot. It was hard to watch."
- Alex Rodriguez
"As soon as he was running full speed, I was hoping he wouldn't do what he did. I ran over to see what happened, because I knew nothing good was coming out of that one."
- Jorge Posada
"Because I fell into the stands the last time, and that cement part doesn't feel too good, so I figured I'd try to jump over that. Now I know the seat doesn't feel too good, either."
- Derek Jeter
"Jeter is a great leader and an inspiration for all of our nation's youth. This was the most exciting game I've ever seen in any sport."
- George Steinbrenner
"I can tell you that this was one of the best games I've ever seen. Not only because I was in it. Regardless. Even counting the playoffs. It was one of the best-played games I've ever seen.''
- Pedro Martinez
"I felt bad when Yankees were one strike away from losing the game. It's not a game we definitely needed to win. But after seeing Jeter catch that ball and disappear in the box seat area...... then Miguel Cairo hit the ball hard to the right field and you know the rest of the story."
- Joey Huang
