This has been going around for a week (we saw it when Keith Law tweeted it this morning) and it is picture perfect. From "Mookie Wilson" waving Kevin Mitchell to the plate, to "Bill Robinson" jumping up and down as the ball rolls through Buckner's legs, to "Ray Knight"'s hands on the back of his head as he scores…
The ball that went through Bill Buckner's legs in 1986 (and possibly the same one that Bob Stanley threw past Rich Gedman?) will go on eBay this month with a starting price of $1 million. It was formerly owned by Charlie Sheen, so hopefully there is $1 million worth of drugs inside of it. [AP]
During that famous Game 6 of the '86 World Series, a Mets fan parachuted onto the field with a "Go Mets" sign and a whole lotta balls. That Vin Scully—who celebrated his 83rd birthday yesterday—made a perfect call is gravy.
