Memorable Baseball Moments- 1976 American League Championship Series- It was the deciding game- Game 5 at Yankee Stadium between the Kansas City Royals and the New York Yankees. The score was tied 6-6 in the bottom of the 9th. Mark Littell was pitching for the Royals- facing the Yankees first baseman Chris Chambliss. The first pitch- Chambliss deposits into the right field stands for a game ending and series ending home run. The two things I remember most about this is- I was rooting for the Royals [more out of my dislike for the Yankees, I’d have probably rooted for the Red Army against the Yankees] and the mob scene on the field after the home run. Chambliss still hasn’t touched home plate. In the World Series the Reds would crush the Yankees in a four game sweep. Maybe the one World Series where I watched but had a hard time rooting for either team- but I did pull for the Reds.
