Few things in sports are more exciting than a come-from-behind win. The buzzer-beater lob from half court, the miraculous Hail Mary touchdown as time expires and of course the walk-off home run are all sensational plays that can make games legendary.
The players that pull off those memorable plays are, at least in those moments, clutch. In sports, "clutch" means performing well when the game is on the line and in high-pressure situations.
While walk-off hits get most of the glory, not all clutch performances are offensive. Looking back at Game 6 of the 1995 World Series, Tom Glavine was the epitome of clutch, as he stifled the potent Cleveland Indians lineup, giving up only one hit over eight masterful innings.
If the Atlanta Braves hope to make a deep run in the playoffs, the team will need clutch performances from players all over its roster.
Which players do the Braves want up when the game or their season is on the line?
