WATCH: 1986 World Series Game 6

Leading 5-4 in the 10th inning, just one out away from their first Championship since 1918, the Red Sox (much to the frenzied delight of the Shea Stadium crowd) watch it all roll slowly away from them… literally. Bob Stanley’s wild pitch allows Kevin Mitchell to score the tying run. Then, on the final pitch of a fabulous at-bat, Mookie Wilson fights off a fastball and dribbles a grounder up the first-base line that slips between Bill Buckner’s legs and into history. Ray Knight dashes home with the game-winning run, forcing a Game 7 and permanently adding Buckner’s name to the list of notorious baseball “goats.”
