Classic Fenway Clout, 1975
It's the morning of October 22, 1975, Game 6 of the Cincinnati-Boston World Series at Fenway Park, and that's Carlton Fisk pleading with his long fly ball to stay fair. Will it? ... Will it? ... Yes! Fair ball!! Home run!!! The Red Sox win!!!!. Fisk's 12th-inning homer off Pat Darcy caps one of the most exciting games in baseball history, and you're experiencing the pulsating moment from a seat located only a few rows behind the Red Sox' on-deck circle. Others visible on the field include Reds' catcher Johnny Bench, first baseman Tony Perez, second baseman Joe Morgan, shortstop Dave Concepcion, third baseman Pete Rose, left fielder George Foster, center fielder Cesar Geronimo and right fielder Ken Griffey. Fred Lynn is on deck for the Red Sox.
Rocket's Red Glare, 1986
The date: April 29, 1986. The site: Fenway Park in Boston. It's the ninth inning, and 23- year-old Red Sox righthander Roger Clemens has just frozen Seattle's Phil Bradley to notch his 20th strikeout of the game. It's a new major league record for strikeouts in a nine-inning game, breaking the modern day 19-K mark originally set by Steve Carlton in 1969. Earlier in the game, Clemens had tied the American League record for consecutive Ks, whiffing eight straight Mariners in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings. Overall, The Rocket allowed only three hits in the game and didn't walk a batter. The performance came in only the 39th starting assignment of his big league career. With this 3-1 victory over the Mariners, Clemens lifted his 1986 record to 4-0 en route to a 14-0 start. He later won the All-Star game, finished the season 24-4 and captured the American League Cy Young and MVP awards.
