  • 1986 - Down to their last out at Shea Stadium, the New York Mets rally for three runs with two outs in the 10th inning against the Boston Red Sox to win 6-5 and push the World Series to a decisive seventh game. The tie-breaking run scores on Boston first baseman Bill Buckner's error on Mookie Wilson's slow grounder.
  • 1996 - Frank Torre, the brother of New York Yankees manager Joe Torre, receives a heart transplant after months of waiting. Frank was the recipient of a World Series ring as a member of the Milwaukee Braves when they beat the Yankees in 1957, and his brother Joe will make him a gift of a World Series ring that's 39 years newer after Game 6 of the 1996 Series.
