Baseball fans who live for the excitement of the game may find it impossible to keep up with all the great plays when there's a dozen contests going on simultaneously.

Too bad this baseball show wasn't around back on May 26, 1993 -- the fly ball that bounced off Texas Rangers outfielder Jose Canseco's head and flew over the fence for a home run would have certainly made the cut. Not all highlights can be that entertaining, but this series collects equally amazing examples of big hits and fielding gems from the previous week.
