Every Indians fan in the world claims they were there. Well before I was a blogger, I was watching this game (wait for it) in my parents’ basement.
It’s incredible to watch still to this day. Omar Vizquel and Kenny Lofton are your heroes. Lofton had four hits and three runs in the game as well as the game-winning run scoring from second on Jolbert Cabrera’s broken-bat single. The rest of the lineup for that game included Roberto Alomar, Juan Gonzalez, Jim Thome, Ellis Burks, Travis Fryman and even a pinch-hitting Russell Branyan. The starter that day was Dave Burba and John Rocker ended up with the win.
Watch the clip for maximum goose-bumps.
