MLB’s looking back at the 2023 postseason and choosing the most legendary moments for their (fittingly-named) Legendary Moment Award, and the Atlanta Braves are in the mix.

Outfielder Michael Harris II’s game-sealing double play in game two of the NLDS is one of four remaining nominees for consideration, and voting is open now!

The 9th inning catch and subsequent double play from Harris that sealed Atlanta’s come from behind game two victory in the NLDS is paired with Adolis Garcia’s walkoff homer in game one of the World Series.

On the other side of the bracket is a play from that same game – Corey Seager’s game-tying homer in that same game. It’s up against Bryce Harper’s two homer night in game three of the NLDS.
