BASEBALL S GREATEST GAMES * WRIGLEY FIELD SLUGFEST * MAY 17, 1979 * THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES WIN THIS WRIGLEY FIELD CLASSIC FEATURING THE POWER OF DAVE KINGMAN AND MIKE SCHMIDT

The Phillies, having won the prior day s game at Wrigley 13-0, jumped out on top 21-9. With the Chicago faithful straining for hope--lo and behold, in one of the wildest Wrigley Field slugfests of all time--the Cubbies stormed back to knot the score at 22!

The stage for this scoreboard jamming contest was set in the first stanza. The Cubs starting pitcher recorded only one out, allowing six runs, while the Phillies starter--who homered in the first inning, also exited after recording only one out and allowing five runs!

The two lineups were filled with stars: Mike Schmidt (2 home runs), Larry Bowa (5 hits), Bob Boone (5 RBI), Bill Buckner (7 RBI), and Dave Kingman (3 home runs). Yes, the wind was blowing out that day at Wrigley.

Direct from the Major League Baseball archives, this rare and extraordinary television broadcast includes the quintessential making of a Wrigley classic, mind-boggling offense 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!
