“Maddux was stunned. Raw rookies don’t homer off the great Greg Maddux, let alone blast the ball off his shoetops for a deep, deep moonshot. Atlanta manager Bobby Cox came out to the mound. His shaken pitcher handed him the ball, and was gone. Floyd’s monster drive sent the Big O crowd into an absolute frenzy, sparking wave after wave of mock war chants and tomahawk chops that didn’t let up until the final out.” — Rod Mickleburgh, SABR
