YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1909 Babe Adams wins his third game, an 8 – 0 win over Detroit, to give the Pirates their first World Series championship.

1912 Fred Snodgrass drops a flyball in center field, which allows the tying run to score in game seven as the Red Sox took the Series. The Giants outfielder, right after the error, made a spectacular catch of a Tris Speaker smash, but the error is what people remember…

1962 Giants slugger Willie McCovey crushes a ball – but right at Bobby Richardson – whose catch ends Game 7 in favor of the Yankees.

1969 The Amazing Mets finish off the Orioles to win the World Series in five games.

1985 Cardinal Jack Clark crushes a Tom Niedenfuer pitch to beat the Dodgers and head to the World Series.

2003 Aaron Boone’s 11th inning homer puts the Yankees in the World Series, and crushes the Red Sox, who thought this might be the year they finally broke the Curse of the Bambino.

2014 Travis Ishikawa hits a three-run homer to win the NLCS for the Giants, and eliminating the Cardinals.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1888 Detroit has a fire sale! Boston picks up Dan Brouthers, Deacon White, Charlie Bennett, Charlie Ganzel, and Hardy Richardson for about $30K; Pittsburgh grabs Pete Conway and Jack Rowe; and Philadelphia snags Sam Thompson for about $5K.

1952 The Browns are busy – sending Duke Markell and $35K to Syracuse for Bobo Holloman, and sending Tommy Byrne and Joe DeMaestri

1961 The Yankees purchased Robin Roberts from the Phillies.
