Atlanta's version of "The Catch" occurred on July 25, 1992 at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium as the Braves took on the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Braves held a 1-0 lead in the top of the ninth inning as Andy Van Slyke walked to the plate with the tying run on first base. Slyke blasted the potential game-winning homer to deep right-center field. Nixon gave chase, and then leaped into the air, using the outfield wall for a boost, and caught the long drive leaning while over the fence. The Catch saved the game for Atlanta.
