The scene at Fenway for Game 2
Fans started to realize that a media event was happening in the Fenway concourse. Vinik told the gathering that he received 15-20 phone calls from friends who saw the play on TV. Vinik was also asked if Angels catcher Jeff Mathis had any words for him after the play. "Not that I heard," said Vinik. "I was just focused on [the catch]. I couldn't hear anything." Vinik's father Jeff (background center) watched the proceedings.
