MLB, which normally lords over its video content like they were classified CIA documents — just try finding something on YouTube! — has just added hundreds of incredible archived clips to its main database. Here are some gems, but there are plenty more where these came from.
1. Michael Sergio parachuting onto the Shea Stadium field during the 1986 World Series.
2. Darryl Strawberry hitting the top of Olympic Stadium with a home run in 1998.
3. Paul O'Neill miraculously kicking the ball back onto the infield in 1989.
4. Bo Jackson running up the outfield wall in 1990.
5. Rey Ordoñez making an out at home from his knees on Opening Day 1996.
Side note: I was at this game with my father, and this clip — while magnificent — still doesn't do the play justice.

If you've seen (or read) Moneyball, then you know how this one ends.
