During Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, Mookie Wilson avoided being hit by a wild pitch, allowing the tying run to score in the bottom of the 10th. His ground ball later in the same at bat went through the legs of Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner, allowing the winning run to score. The play is often known as the "Buckner play," and blamed on the first baseman, but Wilson's smart at bat, speed and determination also affected the course of events. The Mets went on to win that 1986 World Series.
Mookie Wilson and Bill Buckner have hand signed this Official Major League Baseball with 10/25/86 inscription.
