Jurak's Moment - the day of the rat

At Fenway, in 1984 a rat was spotted in the vicinity of the Red Sox on-deck circle. It headed straight for the mound before veering left toward the third base foul line, but not before Ed Jurak came in and fielded the rat, scooping it up in his first baseman's mitt and stuffed him in a trash can in the dugout.
