On June 16, 1962 — With the Tribe trailing the Bronx Bombers, 9-8, Jerry Kindall hits a walk-off two-run homer, giving the Indians a dramatic come-from-behind victory. Left-fielder Yogi Berra, watching the second baseman’s homer go over his head to beat his Yankees 10-9 in the bottom of the ninth, probably experiences a “deja vu all over again” memory of Bill Mazeroski’s Game 7 home run in 1960, which ended with the identical score.
