    In this instance, I believe the Jack Buck call of this home run was just a little more exciting, and better . They are both legends and great,but that Jack Buck call, man that gives ya the goosebumps.

    I remember watching this game. Most likely the greatest game in world series history. You had the some of the greatest pitchers – Dennis Eckersley and Orel Hershiser. The greatest coaches. And everyone forgets that he didn't even play the first 8 innings. He was called in the 9th inning. The greatest clutch hit in World Series history. It's why it's the greatest game. And to top it off, legendary Vin Scully calling the play-by-play.

    Tigers traded away all their great talent by the late 80s. Gibby and Jack Morris. They should have won 3 titles under Sparky.

    Dodgers need to let this fade into history and finally win one for their loyal fans after 31 years...

    I've heard Gibson was in the dugout inside the prep room, hitting a warm up pad , when Lasorda heard him smacking away. So, as the old man went to check it out, it was the big guy, all wilded up asking Lasorda to give him one shot. Well, what can you say , if this is true, the event is more than legendary, and a fantastic story to be told to future baseball generation.
