It's that time again. Starting today and through next week, it's something pulled out of the archives to augment your World Series experience, which, frankly, sometimes amounts to pulling z's on the couch. But c'mon. It's the World Series. I've slept through it many times. I'll sleep through it again.
|Fisk: 31 years ago Saturday (and Sunday morning).|
It all ended with Fisk's just-fair home run, of course. But that was merely the climax of a whole evening of craziness, from Tiant to Armbrister to Lynn and Carbo. For all that, it's No. 2 on my all-time favourite Series moment list - we'll get to the top, and a few others, over the next week.
You want to watch the Fisk blast, here it is.
RED SOX 12TH: Fisk homered; great unintentional video from NBC due to one of the residents in the wall; cameraman watching rat and not paying attention to director; 1 R, 1 H, 0 E, 0 LOB. Reds 6, Red Sox 7.
Getting up to date, Saturday will mark the opening near San Francisco of a replica ballpark of Fenway circa 1975.
