    So many great moments at the Chavez Ravine but this has to be top 5 or even top and the list is huge...

    Watch it to the end.
    He doesn’t touch 2nd base when he rounds the bases.
    Watch carefully!

    Damn, you couldn't have written this in a book or a movie. The way his at bat played out was just amazing.

    Gibson should be in the HOF just for this and the game winner in game 5 of the 84 Series.

    As a Red Sox fan, I'm a fan of the Eck. But this is one of the greatest moments in baseball history.

    Maybe the greatest at bat in baseball history! Legendary! Hollywood couldn’t write it better! What a clutch hitter! I think he was a .268
    batting avg over his career, so just over .250 which is 1 in 4. He was 1 for 1 in the 88 World Series with 1hr and 2 RBIs.

    To lay off three balls...after two strikes is incredible.... no idea why Ekersly made those pitchesso wide that they weren't even close enough to get Gibson to swing. Had he thrown one on the outside corner Gibson probably would've hit a grounder to the shortstop but that's why you play the game

  • Chris McCallister

    Great and memorable at-bat, but I prefer Gibson's 1984 homer against Goose Gossage.

    When I’m old and completely bald I can drive young kids crazy and say I was there! You would not believe the amount of headlights in the parking lot for typical early departing Dodgers fans.
