Happy Anniversary, Boston Red Sox!!
On this date 31 years ago, Bucky Dent ripped out your heart and stomped on it in a historic one-game playoff to decide the AL East when he took a hanging sinker from Mike Torrez on a 1-2 count and jacked it over the Green Mahn-STAH at Fenway, propelling the Yanks to the ALCS, which they won in 5 over the Kansas City Royals. And oh, by the way, he just happened to go on to become World Series MVP for the World Series Champions.
