Some call it the greatest World Series game ever played. Boston beat the Cincinnati Reds, 7-6, in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series thanks to Carlton Fisk’s 12th-inning home run. Fisk shuffling down the first base line, watching the flight of the ball, frantically waving it fair, is one of the most indelible moments in baseball history. But Fisk’s homer was just the final drama in this game for the ages. Where do you begin? Bernie Carbo’s pinch-hit, three-run, game-tying home run in the eighth? George Foster throwing out the Sox’ Denny Doyle at the plate in the ninth? Dwight Evans’ catch to rob Joe Morgan of a home run in the 11th? Sadly for the Sox, despite the Game 6 win, the Reds ended up winning the Series.
