Roberto Alomar was known for being a defensive wizard at second base in part because of his amazing range and quick instincts. And those characteristics were certainly on display during Alomar's finest moment in the field as a Blue Jay. In Game 1 of the 1993 World Series, Alomar made an unbelievable sliding grab off the bat of Philadelphia Phillies' Lenny Dykstra. In the top of the fifth, Dykstra looped what looked like a sure hit over the head of John Olerud. But Alomar raced behind the Jays first baseman, dove and snagged the ball before it hit the ground. Television commentator Tim McCarver said after the catch that no other second baseman in the game would have even come close to that ball.
