On This Day In Baseball History: October 25, 1986

Bill Buckner

 

Sorry Red Sox fans, I have to do it.

“A little roller up along first, behind the bag. It gets through Buckner. Here comes Knight and the Mets win it.”

The Mets mob Knight and Shea goes crazy. This single play will be how some younger sports fan know of Mookie Wilson and Bill Buckner. The Mets, of course, go on to win Game 7, extending the Red Sox curse.
