The seats were in the section built atop the press box in the old Stadium. My friend John Lawson, who served ably as Best Man at my wedding some eighteen years later, caught a foul ball from Incaviglia.

How slow was Incaviglia? The 22-year-old singled in the seventh and was replaced at first with 32-year-old pinch runner Gary Ward.
