1975, Game 6
It may have lacked the jaw-dropping athleticism of Mays’ catch or the beauty of Larsen’s perfect game, but Carlton Fisk’s game-winning homer leading off the bottom of the 12th of a tied Game 6 of the 1975 Series may have been baseball’s brightest-shining moment. It capped what many consider to be the greatest game in the greatest Series ever played. We look back and almost forget that, once again, the Red Sox were the losers in the Series after they dropped Game 7. But for one night, baseball’s most haunted franchise was on top of the world.
