Kirk Gibson's 1988 World Series Homerun ball
by Ed Moran



First the video plays in real time. Then it plays a second time in slow motion. My uncle Carlos and my sister Jasmine are highlighted in the circle. The video is blurry up until the last few frames. You can see him wearing a black t-shirt and a gray zippered sweatshirt. I tried to guess and highlight the path the ball took. It helps when you know where it ended so my first idea was to find my uncle and sister in the video. I spent many hours looking for them until I found them. Then I looked at the crowd and where they were looking for the ball.
