Game 6, 1975 World Series.
The whole game is pretty intense.

just rewatched. Seems pretty obvious now outside of the excitement of the moment. It was called immediately by U3 (pointed). The discussion after it looks like the red sox guy is trying to explain lack of intent and the two umps just shake their head breaking it to him that intent doesn't matter.

too lazy to check my homer-fan take on that in 2013 (red sox fan).

I was at game 6 to see the red sox win that year! work trip had me in town, friend had access to tickets. Big splurge, tons of fun. The 3 hours waiting for a cab to my dad's home weren't fun. But it was cool.

Since the college BB title game was supposed to be Monday, CBS put together their top 101 tourney games in the 64(+) team era. It's not a ranking, just a list of best by year.

Touch 'em all, Joe

As much as I hated seeing it since I'm a Phillies fan, it's hard to imagine a bigger baseball finish than trailing in the 9th and hitting a walk-off HR to end the World Series. Maybe if it was Game 7 instead of Game 6.
