Today in Baseball History:

  • 1988 — With two outs in the bottom of the 9th inning, Kirk Gibson hits a two-run, pinch-home run off Dennis Eckersley to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5 - 4 victory over the Oakland Athletics in Game 1 of the World Series. In his only plate appearance in the Series, Gibson, who did not start because of a strained left knee, limps around the bases as the Dodgers win one of the most dramatic games in Series history. Following the 2010 season, a panel of experts at the MLB Network will vote this game the 10th greatest game of the past fifty years.
