Box Score of the Week

It's League Championship Series time! 

Let's check out Game 5 of the 1976 ALCS - Kansas City Royals at New York Yankees


Chris Chambliss' home run in the bottom of the ninth inning sent the Yankees to the World Series. So delirious were the hometown fans, they stormed the field with many mobbing Chambliss as he rounded the bases. He never did touch home plate, instead running for his life to the home dugout. Shortly thereafter, a couple of uniformed security guards escorted Chambliss from the clubhouse to the area where the plate used to be (some ambitious fan stole it in the melee) in order for him to officially step on it.
