BASEBALL S GREATEST GAMES * 1986 WORLD SERIES * GAME 6 * THE NEW YORK METS WIN THIS ALL-TIME FALL CLASSIC FEATURING MOOKIE WILSON S GAME-WINNER

Was this the greatest game in World Series history? A lead-changing contest for the first nine innings, the Boston Red Sox took a two-run lead into the bottom of the eventful 10th inning. The Red Sox faithful moved to within one out of a long awaited World Series championship. One more out and this would be their first title since 1918. One out.

The Mets World Series was kept alive by Gary Carter s two-out single which was matched by Kevin Mitchell, then Ray Knight. For Mets fans in the blink of a teary eye the score was tied and the cosmic momentum was headed in one direction. The sequence of Mookie Wilson s a little roller up along first... and the Shea Stadium-rocking delirium that followed is forever chiseled in World Series history.

Direct from the Major League Baseball archives, this extraordinary television broadcast includes the quintessential drama of a Fall Classic, an iconic moment, and one unforgettable baseball game.

A special DVD audio feature allows fans to watch the television broadcast and listen to the radio play-by-play!

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Appreciation August 14, 2012
I watched this game back in 1986. I wasn't a fan of either team, but I remember watching and rooting somewhat for the Mets. Over the years, I've always felt that Bill Buckner got a bad rap and that more of the blame for the Red Sox collapse should have fallen on pitcher Calvin Schiraldi. I finally watched the DVD of the game all these years later, and I still feel that way. In fact, the Red Sox had already blown their lead by the time of Buckner's error. That error just broke what had become a tie game.

I am a big Texas Rangers fan, and this past October I took my 12-year-old son up to St. Louis to see Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. Watching the Rangers blow their two-run lead in the bottom of the 9th when they needed only one out to win the championship was just agony. They managed to regain the two-run lead in the 10th inning and then blow it again in the bottom of the 10th, again when they were just one out away. Because of this, I now have a new appreciation for what Red Sox fans must have felt as a result of this 1986 Game 6. And, like the Red Sox, the Rangers wound up losing Game 7 as well.

These games that wind up getting called "Baseball's Greatest Games" are always looked at as pure agony by fans of the losing teams...

There is no denying that America has a fascination with lists. We are constantly striving to order things and categorize them resulting in much discussion, fun, and even argumentation. What is the best? What is your favorite? Listing things has become almost as much of a sport and pastime as the items that are being defined. For baseball lovers, A&E and Major League Baseball have joined forces to launch a new series of DVDs sure to provoke passion, disagreement, and fond remembrances. Called "Baseball's Greatest Games," the collaboration sets out with 10 initial choices. Each game is presented in its entirety as it was originally broadcast but cleaned-up and with additional play by play. I'll list them here as an easy reference (also available seperately is a volume with Derek Jeter's 3000th hit) :

1960 World Series Game 7: Pittsburgh Pirates vs New York Yankees
1975 World Series Game 6: Boston Red Sox vs Cincinnati Reds
1979 Wrigley Field Slugfest: Philadelphia Phillies vs Chicago Cubs
1985 NLCS Game 5: St. Louis Cardinals vs Los Angeles Dodgers
1986 World Series Game 6: New York Mets vs Boston Red Sox
1991 World Series Game 7: Minnesota Twins vs Atlanta Braves
1992 NLCS Game 7: Pittsburgh Pirates vs Atlanta Braves
1993 World Series Game 6: Toronto Blue Jays vs Philadelphia Phillies
2003 ALCS Game 7: Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees
2004 ALCS Game 4: Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees

The three volumes that I have sampled so far are the '86 Mets vs Red Sox, '04 Red Sox vs Yankees, and '91 Twins vs Braves.

The '86 Mets vs Red Sox game is, of course, epitomized by the dramatic Mookie Wilson finale in the tenth after the lead had been combated throughout the innings.
