 San Diego Serenade: 1986 World Series Game 6 Re-Enacted in RBI Baseball
Game Six is one of the most surreal, unbelievable displays of sports in history, and hopefully now that the Sox have emerged victorious in the World Series, it can be seen more as an utterly stupifying comeback, and less of a devastating choke job.
The 1986 WS are particularly enjoyable for me because I have Keith Hernandez's autobiography 'If At First' in which he details that game, how he was feeling, how shocked he was, etc, etc...so seeing it re-played (in RBI baseball, bringing back childhood memories nonetheless) was awesome.
I was 12 years old on that night in 1986, and sitting in the right field stands.
