My vote may have to go to Gonzo. One game 7 in the bottom of the ninth with Mariano Rivera on the mound.....

I believe in clutch (Don't hit me HOOTIE) but I also don't respect clutch players, ie: Kobe. It's not as rampant as most people say it is, but I believe there are players who perform better when they have pressure on them. Closers are a good example of this. Why do they do so bad in non-save situations and so good in save situations? Don't tell me that's not clutch.......

And whoever said they'd want Jeter up with the bases loaded, 2 out, blah blah blah, you should be shot. Bring back that Mendoza guy, he could probably do better :-b

I tend to stay away from Mets in conversations like this because people just disregard your opinion and assume you're being a homer. But yeah Piazza is pretty clutch. :-D

Why is hitting in the 2nd inning different from hitting in the 9th? Please explain.

I'd say that if a team was losing hitting in the 9th would involve more pressure than hitting in the 2nd and being behind.

Please define "pressure". Most ML hitters are very focused individuals. They are trying to make contact regardless what inning it is.

Is there a difference between these two situations with 2 on and 2 out and losing by 1?
1) Hitting in the 2nd inning of opening day
2) Hitting in the 9th inning of game 7 in the World Series

I consider clutch to be performing well when the pressure is on and the things you do make a major difference.

im sure most of you people here have played baseball at some level...be it little league, babe ruth, mickey mantle, pro, college, whatever. you people tell me if there is a different sensation coming to bat at the very end of a game when your team is in a situation where they NEED YOU to produce. ignore "pressure" if you want, but its there.
