On October 16, 2003, the Yankees defeat the Red Sox in one of the greatest games in baseball history. With the two rivals meeting in Game Seven of the ALCS, the Red Sox hold a 5-2 lead entering the bottom of the eighth inning. Pedro Martinez is in control but wavers in the eighth as the Yankees score three to knot the game. The classic battle goes to the 11th inning, helped by great relief pitching from Mariano Rivera of the Bombers. In the Yanks half of the inning, Aaron Boone hits a Tim Wakefield pitch into the left field stands to give the Yankees a dramatic 6-5 win and a trip to the World Series.
After being drilled by a pitch in Game 2 of the ALCS, Bert Campaneris, 3-for-3 on the day, hurls his bat at Tiger pitcher Lerrin LaGrow, resulting with both players ejected from the game. In addition to being fined $500, the A’s shortstop is suspended for the rest of this series and five games to start next season, but will be permitted to play in the World Series.
