Ex-Cub Rick Monday Still Remembered for Saving Flag during Flag Burning Incident in 1976

c Washington Post
Rick Monday saves the day April 25, 1976. Dude, like where's my flag?

Rick Monday, a former outfielder for the Chicago Cubs (among other teams) saved an American Flag from being burned in the Dodger Stadium outfield during a game thirty years ago today. The nation was celebrating our Bi-Centenial that year, making it a bad year to mess with the flag. As you can see from articles here, here and here Mr. Monday is still considered a hero for saving that flag thirty years ago.
