The great 19th century catcher/outfielder King Kelly is playing right field in Boston. The game goes into the 12th inning, and it's getting dark. With two outs, the batter drives a pitch deep to right. Kelly dashes back, leaps for a two-handed catch and trots back to the bench. The umpire calls the batter out and calls the game on account of darkness as a tie.
Kelly's teammates congratuate him for saving them a loss. One asked how deep the ball was hit. "How the hell should I know?" the King replies. "It went a mile over my head."
