Small video of each has been embedded as a reminder of the play, or you can click on the header link, which will open a new tab with a larger version of the video on MLB.com. Pick your favorite of these five in the poll at the bottom. The winner of each group, and the highest-scoring runner up, will advance to the final vote, which will take place next week.
