Ten years ago, Carlos Beltran struck out looking against Adam Wainwright to end the 2006 National League Division Series and send the St. Louis Cardinals to the World Series.

The Cardinals went on to defeat the Detroit Tigers in five games to capture their 10th World Series title.

But you'll never believe who sat behind home plate on that night. Take a look at the background of this photo by Andy Mills of the Neward Star-Ledger.

Can you see him?


It's Jeff Wilpon! Look at him just sitting there totally oblivious that two years later, his family would succumb to Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme.
