 New York Yankees - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A sudden-death playoff game between the two teams was held to decide who would go on to the pennant, with the game being held at Boston's Fenway Park (because the Red Sox had won more head-to-head games between the two teams that season).
The Yankees won the day, driving a stake through the hearts of their rivals' fans when Bucky Dent drove a game-winning home run over the "Green Monster," one of several emotional moments in the team's history that had Red Sox fans wondering if their team was under some kind of a curse.
The 2005 season for the New York Yankees thus far has not ushered in any memories of the dynasty days.

His career interrupted twice for military service in World War II and Korea, the last of the.400 hitters (.406 in 1941) was a tired 42 during the 1960 season.
Perhaps Grantland Rice's overwrought lead on the 1924 Notre Dame-Army football game ("Outlined against a blue-gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again..."), but there was nothing especially epic about the event.
