On October 15, 1988, an injured Kirk Gibson hits one of the most dramatic home runs in World Series lore. With two outs in the ninth, and the Los Angeles Dodgers trailing the Oakland A’s by a run, Gibson limps to the plate with a strained knee. Gibson smacks a two-run homer against Dennis Eckersley to win Game One.
