Back In Time - Happened on OCTOBER 13!

Born on This Day
THE TRUTH - 1977
NY Yankees - 2001

Being down 2-0 in best-of-five series to the A's, Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter backs up an errant relay throw down the first base and flipping it home to cut down Jeremy Giambi, the potential tying run. It will be remembered as one of the best defensive plays in post season history.
Roberto Clemente - 1971
In the first World Series night game ever played, the Pirates defeat the Orioles, 4-3 as Roberto Clemente collects three hits at Three Rivers Stadium.
Bill Mazeroski's Walk Off - 1960
At Forbes Field, Bill Mazeroski's dramatic bottom of the ninth inning home run off Yankee hurler Ralph Terry breaks up a 9-9 tie and ends one of the most exciting seven-game World Series ever played.
