It was one of the most magical moments in World Series history. With the heavily-favored Oakland A's holding a one-run lead and the game's greatest closer on the mound, it looked like the 1988 World Series was going to start according to form. The Dodgers' best hitter, Kirk Gibson, was in the clubhouse - unavailable, we were told, nursing injuries to both legs. Yet, with a man on and two outs, we can all still hear Vin Scully's voice, as if it was yesterday: "And look who's coming up." Loping up to the plate like a wounded bear, taking awkward hacks of the bat, and staring down the barrel of Dennis Eckersley's rocket arm, it looked hopeless. The count went to 3-and-2, and then, as Scully would later say, "the impossible happened". Eck tried to nail him with a back-door slider, but Kirk reached out and dropped the hammer, making an immaculate connection and somehow willing a long fly ball over the fence in right for a game-winning Home Run! As he slowly rounded the bases on those banged-up twigs, carried along by the deafening roar of an ecstatic home crowd, his arms went up in the air, and SNAP! The moment is preserved for all-time, and is now available for your wall. Re-live the moment with every glance with this spectacular premium-quality poster-sized print, a SportsPosterWarehouse.com exclusive. Printed on premium matte photographic stock, direct from the original photographic source, complete with the official 1988 World Series logo, and affixed with an MLB authentic serialized hologram for authenticity, this is pure magic! A brilliant piece of baseball history for your home, office, clubhouse or Man Cave, this is the ultimate commemorative of one of the greatest moments you'll ever see on the grand old baseball diamond.
