In 1960, this hall of famer won game 7 of the World Series for the Pirates.
In 1951, he hit the 'shot heard round the world' to beat the Dodgers in a rare three-game playoff to break the regular season standings tie.
The date: August 8, 1974. The pitcher: Al Downing. The ballpark: Fulton County Stadium.
His 1993 Game 6 home run won the world series.
Tainted now, his 1998 home run was witnessed by the family of the answer to question 7.
His jubilant coaxing of this 1975 World Series home run to stay in fair territory is one of the most repeated replays in MLB history.
Some would probably argue that his 1961 home run completed the best home run season of all time - even though it stands with an asterisk.
Like the ending to a predictable sports movie, the Game 1 home run of this injured Dodger was baseball's 'Willis Reed' moment.
His 2001 home run broke baseball's greatest single season record - yet is remembered with far less fondness than the feats of 1998, 1961, and 1927 that preceded it.
With this 1978 playoff home run, he earned the middle name 'f-ing' in New England.
An extra-inning Game 6 HR capped off an incredible World Series performance by this center fielder who earlier had stolen an opponent's home run with a leaping catch at the wall.
This role-player's 2001 Game 5 home run was the second straight 9th inning game-tying homer for the Yankees in the Series.
In possibly the greatest single World Series game ever turned in by a player, he hit a monster 475-foot shot in the eighth inning for his third home run of the game.
In one of the most bizarre HR trots of all time, this Yankee in 1976 won the pennant and had to hide out in the clubhouse when his route around the basepaths was blocked by fans.
His 1950 Ebbets Field home run, on the last day of the season, ended the hopes of the home team's pennant hopes and sent the Whiz Kids to the World Series.

how the **** did they not put aaron boone on this list

Maris does not and never did have an asterisk. Record books listed two records until McGwire & Sosa shattered the old records.

Is 2001 regarded that much less fondly than 1998?

Brosius wasn't a role player... he was the full-time third baseman.

^^^ "Role player" typically refers to a player who is not one of the stars on the team. Role player doesn't mean part-timer or pinch hitter.

Maris had an asterisk, but it was eventually removed
Nov 11th, 2010 at 02:52 GMT
Ruth's Called Shot should have made the top 10.
