Kolten Wong’s walk-off homer Sunday to give the St. Louis Cardinals a win to tie the NLCS at a game apiece is a golden sports moment.
Is it the greatest ever for a former University of Hawaii athlete?
I submit Glenn Braggs’ catch to propel the Cincinnati Reds into the 1990 World Series as just as great. It’s not as memorable as Wong’s homer for many, but in a pure baseball sense it is just as big.
Others that are noteworthy. (Remember, we’re talking “moments” not careers)
*Jason Elam’s 63-yard field goal, at the time tying the NFL record for longest.
*Jeris White’s 77-yard interception return for a touchdown for Washington in a playoff game against Detroit in 1982.
*Natasha Kai’s overtime goal to lead the U.S. to a quarterfinal win in the 2008 Olympics.
