1976 Playoff Game 5 Yankees-Royals
CHAMBLISS WALK OFF HOME RUN Game 5 Thursday, October 14, 1976 at Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E Kansas City 2 1 0 0 0 0 0 3 0 6 11 1 New York 2 0 2 0 0 2 0 0 1 7 11 1 WP: Dick Tidrow (1–0) LP: Mark Littell (0–1) Home runs: KC: John Mayberry (1), George Brett (1) NYY: Chris Chambliss (2) The deciding game was a fitting ending to a thrilling series as both teams fought tooth and nail to bring home the AL flag. It culminated in a moment of sheer, unbridled joy for the winners and stunned disbelief for the losers. The Yankees started Ed Figueroa on three days rest, as the Royals did likewise, starting Dennis Leonard. The Royals jumped out on top in the first as Brett doubled and scored on John Mayberry's two-run homer. The Yankees quickly countered in their half as Mickey Rivers tripled and scored on Roy White's infield single. White went to third after Thurman Munson singled. Herzog removed Leonard and brought in Game 2 winner Paul Splittorff, who limited the damage by allowing only Chambliss' sacrifice fly. The Royals countered with one in the second but the Yanks jumped ahead in the third as they tacked on two, one on a Munson single and the other on a Chambliss' ground out. The Yanks added on in the sixth scoring twice, once on a Munson single and a second time on a Brett throwing error. Figueroa held that lead going into the eighth. After Al Cowens led off with a single, Billy Martin brought in lefty Grant Jackson. He allowed a single to pinch hitter Jim Wohlford. Brett then stunned the sell-out crowd of 56,821 by planting Jackson's second pitch just over the short right-field wall tying the game at six. All this was a prelude to the bottom of the ninth inning, when at 11:13 pm, Chris Chambliss hit KC reliever Mark Littell's first pitch over the right center field wall. Thousands of fans vaulted over the dugouts and walls and celebrated. Chambliss reached second, then dodged hordes of spectators in trying to reach third. He then proceeded to make a beeline towards the safety of the clubhouse as the area around home plate and much of the field was covered with celebrating fans. Some time later Chambliss was escorted back out onto the field to touch home, but the plate had been stolen. He touched the area where the plate had been. He was later informed by the umpires that, given the circumstances of the situation, they would have counted the run regardless.

1977 World Series Game 6 Yankees-Dodgers
REGGIE JACKSON HITS THREE HOME RUNS Game 6 Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E Los Angeles 2 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 4 9 0 New York 0 2 0 3 2 0 0 1 X 8 8 1 WP: Mike Torrez (2–0) LP: Burt Hooton (1–1) Home runs: LAD: Reggie Smith (3) NYY: Chris Chambliss (1), Reggie Jackson 3 (5) Game 6 shifted the series back to Yankee Stadium, where 56,407 fans filled Yankee Stadium. Steve Garvey put the Dodgers on the board first with a two-out, two-run triple in the first off Mike Torrez. The Yankees came back and tied it in the second on a Chris Chambliss two-run homer after Reggie Jackson walked on four pitches. Reggie Smith put the Dodgers up 3–2 with his third homer of the Series, a solo shot in the third. Jackson hit a two-run homer in the fourth on the first pitch he saw from starter Burt Hooton to give the Yankees the lead. Lou Piniella made it 5–3 by adding a sacrifice fly. Once again, in the fifth with a man on, Jackson connected on the first pitch off Elias Sosa to make the score 7–3. Finally, in the eighth, Jackson strode to the plate, amid the chants of "REG-GIE, REG-GIE, REG-GIE!", and drove the first Charlie Hough knuckleball he saw 475 feet (145 m) into the stands. The score was now 8–3. With his Game 5 first-pitch homer and his four-pitch walk in the second inning of Game 6, Jackson homered on his last four swings of the bat in the Series, each off a different Dodger pitcher. The Dodgers pushed across a run in the ninth, but Torrez pitched his second complete game win of the Series.

1978 Playoff Game Yankees-Red Sox
ALL NINE INNINGS ON TWO DVD'S Ron Guidry, the Yankees 25-game winner and the eventual 1978 American League Cy Young winner, started for New York. Mike Torrez, a former Yankee and now a 16-game winner for Boston, took the hill for the Red Sox. The Red Sox took a 2-0 lead on a home run by their resident legend, Carl Yastrzemski, and a run scoring single by that year's MVP Jim Rice. Then, in the top half of the seventh, with Chris Chambliss and Roy White on base, Yankee shortstop Bucky Dent, who hit five home runs that year, drilled a Torrez pitch just over the Green Monster in left field to put the Yankees ahead by a score of 3-2. It was a Yankee home run that neither side would ever forget. Thurman Munson doubled home another run in the 7th and Reggie homered in the 8th to put the Yanks up 5-2. The Sox closed the gap to 5-4 in the bottom of the 8th inning on run scoring singles by Fred Lynn and Carl Yastrzemski. But in the ninth inning, Rich "Goose" Gossage was able to get Yaz to pop out to third baseman Graig Nettles with two runners on to seal the win and capture the division crown. Later that week, the Yankees beat George Brett and the Kansas City Royals in four games in the American League Championship Series. Then, after going down two games to none to the Dodgers in the World Series, they won four straight and clinched their second consecutive world championship.

2003 ALCS Game 7 Yankees-Red Sox
AARON BOONE HISTORIC HOME RUN Game 7Thursday, October 16, 2003 at Yankee Stadium (I) in Bronx, New York Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 R H E Boston 0 3 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 5 11 0 New York 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 3 0 0 1 6 11 1 WP: Mariano Rivera (1–0) LP: Tim Wakefield (2–1) Home runs: BOS: Trot Nixon (3), Kevin Millar (1), David Ortiz (2) NYY: Jason Giambi 2 (3), Aaron Boone (1) In the Martinez–Clemens rematch of Game 3, the Sox took an early lead in Game 7, jumping to a 4–0 lead and knocking Clemens out of the game in the fourth inning with two men on base and nobody out. Only three brilliant shutout innings by Mike Mussina (making the first relief appearance of his career) and two solo home runs by Jason Giambi kept the Yankees in the ballgame. But in the eighth inning, with the Red Sox leading 5–2, things unraveled for Boston. Sox manager Grady Little left a tiring Martinez in for the eighth, a controversial move which is still discussed years later. Little had two relievers who had shown some effectiveness in the games leading up to the seventh game—Scott Williamson and Mike Timlin (who had not allowed a single hit in the playoffs)—in the bullpen. However, both Williamson and Timlin had experienced stretches of ineffectiveness during the season, while Martinez had Hall of Fame credentials. Critics of the move note that Martinez had experienced diminished effectiveness in the late innings of games in which he had thrown more than 100 pitches. After the Cy Young Award winner Martinez assured his manager he still had something left, he gave up a double to Derek Jeter and a single to Bernie Williams, prompting Little to go out to the mound. To the surprise of many, Little left Martinez in the game, leaving lefty Alan Embree in the bullpen with the left-handed Hideki Matsui coming to the plate. Martinez gave up a double to Matsui and a bloop double to Jorge Posada to tie the game, sending it to extra innings. Mariano Rivera came in for the ninth and pitched three shutout innings. Tim Wakefield pitched a scoreless tenth for Boston and in the bottom of the eleventh faced Aaron Boone, who had entered earlier as a pinch-runner. In one of the most dramatic scenes in baseball history, on the first pitch Boone launched a home run into the left field seats. Fox Sports displayed a vivid collection of images thereafter: tears welling up in the eyes of Aaron's brother, Seattle Mariners infielder Bret Boone (the guest announcer), ALCS MVP Mariano Rivera running to the mound and collapsing on it in joy, Boone jumping on home plate, and Rivera being carried off on his teammates' shoulders

Buster Douglas Defeats Mike Tyson
Tyson vs. Douglas was a historic boxing match that occurred at the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan on February 11, 1990, in which then undefeated, undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson lost via knockout to the 42–1 underdog Buster Douglas. The fight is widely considered one of the biggest upsets in sports history. Going into the fight, Mike Tyson was the undefeated & undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. He held the WBC, WBA, and IBF titles. Despite the several controversies that marked Tyson's profile at the time, such as his notorious, abusive relationship with Robin Givens; the contractual battles between longtime manager Bill Cayton and promoter Don King; and Tyson's departure from longtime trainer Kevin Rooney. Mike Tyson was still lethal in the ring, scoring a 93-second knockout against Carl "The Truth" Williams in his previous fight. Most considered this fight to be a warm-up bout for Tyson before meeting up with then-undefeated number 1 heavyweight contender Evander Holyfield (who was ringside for the fight). Buster Douglas was a journeyman who had had mixed success in his professional boxing career up to that point. His previous title fight was against Tony Tucker in 1987, in which he was TKO'd in the 10th round. However, a string of six consecutive wins gave him the opportunity to fight Tyson. In the time leading up to the fight, Douglas faced a number of setbacks, including the death of his mother, Lula Pearl, 23 days before the fight. Additionally, his son's mother was facing a severe kidney ailment, and he had contracted the flu the day before the fight.

Don Larsen's Perfect Game
The pitching career of Don Larsen can be seen in one game on one day in an incredible World Series. On Oct. 8, 1956, Larsen was as close to perfect as any pitcher can be and he chose the most important series in baseball to have his shining moment. Larsen finished his pitching career with an 81-91 record and a 3.78 earned run average in 14 seasons. In 1956, Larsen was just 11-5 with the New York Yankees, posting a 3.26 earned run average. In the second game of the 1956 World Series, he had been chased out in second inning. Then, something happened in Game 5. Larsen faced Sal Maglie of the Dodgers in an historic pitching duel. Larsen set down 27 Dodgers in a row to get a win for the Yankees, 2-0. It was the only perfect game to ever be thrown in a World Series. Dale Mitchell was the last batter to face Larsen. He was called out by the umpire on a called strike three. Mitchell thought the ball was outside but he didn't get a chance to argue. As soon as the strike was called, catcher Yogi Berra ran on the field and jumped into Larsen's arms as the celebration began. Larsen's first season in the Major League was in 1953 with the St. Louis Browns. He finished with a 7-12 record on a team that finished with a 54-100 record. The next season, the Brown moved to Baltimore and Larsen put together one of the worst pitching seasons on record. Larsen pitched to a 3-21 record and a 4.37 earned run average on a team that also finished 54-100. Larsen came to New York after the 1955 season as part of an 18-player deal. Larsen had the reputation of loving parties and in spring training 1956, Larsen crashed his car into a telephone pole. Manager Casey Stengel said, "He was probably mailing a letter." In 1956, he had posted an 11-5 record. The 11 wins in a season were his career high. Larsen used a no-windup delivery. In 1957, he finished 10-4 with the Yankees, appearing in 27 games and starting in 20. In 1958, Larsen appeared in 19 games for the Yankees and finished with a 9-6 record. The next season, he finished 6-7 on a Yankees team that finished in last place. In the offseason, the Yankees made a number of deals, including trading Larsen to the Kansas City Athletics in a deal that brought Roger Maris to New York. Larsen's first season with the Athletics was far less than successful. Larsen posted a 1-10 record and an earned run average greater than 5. He pitched just 15 innings for the Athletics in 1961 before being sent to the White Sox. With Chicago, he posted a 7-2 record as a reliever. He was traded again in 1962. This time was traded to the Giants. After two seasons for the Giants in which he finished a combined 12-11, Larsen bounced around to several teams. His last shot in the Majors came in 1967 from the Chicago Cubs. As a batter, Larsen hit .242 in his career, but had 14 career home runs. He was also used 66 times in his career as a pinch hitter.

Wrestlemania Collection
8 WRESTLEMANIA EVENTS ON 8 DVD'S A world indoor attendance-record set of 93,173 fans was set at WrestleMania III, which was also the largest paying attendance in the history of professional wrestling at the time. The event is widely considered to be the pinnacle of the 1980s wrestling boom. To make certain that every seat in the Silverdome would be filled, the WWF decided to exclude the entire state of Michigan from pay-per-view access to the event, which made attending the event the only way for fans in Michigan to see it. The main event featured Hogan defending the WWF Championship against André the Giant. The moment when Hogan body slammed André the Giant remains one of the most famous moments in professional wrestling history. The match between the WWF Intercontinental Champion Randy Savage and Ricky Steamboat also gained much acclaim and popularity. WrestleMania VI marked the first time the event took place outside of the United States. It was held at the SkyDome, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In the main event match, The Ultimate Warrior won the WWF Championship from Hulk Hogan. WrestleMania VII was originally scheduled to be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, however, the event was moved to the adjacent Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena for security reasons due to the Gulf War. The event saw Hulk Hogan face Sgt. Slaughter for the WWF Championship, while The Undertaker made his WrestleMania debut defeating Jimmy Snuka. Since then, The Undertaker has been undefeated in all of his WrestleMania matches. This feat has been ranked by The Mirror as the 7th greatest winning streak in sports history (it was the only streak from professional wrestling to be ranked in the list). Michaels defeated Bret Hart to win the WWF Championship in a 60-minute Iron Man match at WrestleMania XII. The match is considered to be one of the best matches in the history of the event. At WrestleMania XIV, Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated Shawn Michaels to become the new WWF Champion in a match that featured Mike Tyson serving as the special enforcer. Although Tyson had been aligned with Michaels and his stable, D-Generation X, Tyson revealed to have been aligned with Austin all along as he personally counted the pinfall and declared Austin the winner.
