With the Red Sox one strike away from clinching the
1986 World Series in the bottom of the tenth inning of Game Six, Mookie Wilson fouled off pitch after pitch with last second
swings. Finally, he hit a slow grounder to first baseman Bill Buckner, playing well behind the base. The ball
eluded Buckner, allowing Wilson's teammate Knight to score the winning run. With drama quite different from a game-winning
home run, the accumulated excitement of the slowly building rally capped by the tension of Wilson's at-bat made the game one
of the most exciting in World Series history.
This moment in time is captured by renowned sports artist Rob MacDougall in a classic one-of-a-kind painting.
The original painting has been purchased by the Mets and is housed in the Mets Hall of Fame and Museum at Citi Field. The
painting was presented to the Mets on Wednesday, September 14, 2011.
