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:
|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.
