DATE: 10/2/1978
GAME: New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox (Regular Season Tie-Breaker)
PLAYER: Bucky Dent, New York Yankees
COMPLEX SAYS: Before young'n Red Sox fans knew about Aaron Boone, their elders were cursing Bucky Dent. The undersized shortstop only batted .247 and belted 40 home runs in his 12-season career, but this launch over the Green Monster put the Yankees on track to their second title in as many years and Dent's name among the Yankee legends. Soundtrack, please!
