Ron made a diving catch in the ninth inning on a line drive by Brooks Robinson in Game 4 of the 1969 World series. The catch kept the Orioles from doing more than tie the game at 1-1. The Mets went on to win the game in the bottom of the 10th. Swoboda also drove in the winning run in the Game 5 clincher.
