Kaline’s catch, a footnote

On Saturday, I wrote about Al Kaline’s great, win-preserving catch against the New York Yankees on May 26, 1962 at Yankee Stadium. Kaline broke his collar bone making the play.

It turns out that Bill Kristol was at the game, sitting with his father near right field, where Kaline made the play. He recalls the catch here, and provides a great link to sports writer Bill Dow’s recollection of it, and of Kaline.
