Date / Oct 15, 1988

Location / Dodger Stadium | Los Angeles, Calif.

Moment / Expected to be sidelined with a pair of leg injuries, Kirk Gibson was summoned to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. The Los Angeles Dodgers were trailing 4-3 to the Oakland Athletics, but Gibson, the hobbled NL MVP, played hero, taking feared A's closer Dennis Eckersley deep to give the Dodgers a 5-4 win.

Impact / The at-bat was Gibson's only plate appearance of the World Series, but it helped Los Angeles win the World Series in five games.
