We have come to the conclusion of our poll where we asked which was the best Legendary Scoreboard Game we have featured.  The votes are in and in a close race the Kirk Gibson walk off home run off of Dennis Eckersley in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series just edged out Don Larsen’s 1956 Perfect Game.

Here is the breakdown:

Game Teams Notes Votes
World Series Game 1 1988 A’s versus Dodgers Gibson Walkoff 31%
World Series Game 5 1956 Dodgers versus Yankees Larsen’s Perfect 28%
World Series Game 6 1986 Red Sox versus Mets Buckner’s Boot 19%
World Series Game 6 1993 Phillies versus Blue Jays Carter’s Walkoff 14%
World Series Game 4 1996 Yankees versus Braves Leyritz Homer 8%

There might have been some last minute persuasion as a Baseballisms fan, Jim Bawbe, submitted a recollection of actually attending that game …

Thanks to everyone who participated!

Now it’s time to put up a new poll.  There are so many things that would be interesting to know, we had a hard time deciding what to ask.  After some serious brainstorming we have decided to ask your favorite Fan Ballpark Tradition.

So baseball fans, which tradition would you most like to participate in?

Wrigley Field – Cubs Fans throw back an opponent home run ball

Yankee Stadium – Yankee Fans conduct the player Roll Call

Ebbetts Field – Dodger fans march as the Brooklyn Dodger Sym-Phony Band

Fenway Park – Red Sox Royal Rooters sing Tessie

Angel Stadium – Fans break out Rally Monkeys and Thundersticks

Please vote early and vote often in the Poll in the right hand column.  We know there are more that we could have included so please let us know in the comments any others that are worthy of a mention.
