The Boston Red Sox and The Tampa Bay Rays. Tied for the AL Wild Card going into the very last game of the season, game 162. The team with the winning record goes to the postseason.
Boston had their shot at The Baltimore Orioles, one of the worst teams in baseball and the last place team in the AL East.
Tampa had their shot at The New York Yankees, the best team in baseball and the first place team in the AL East.
Fate would create what every single baseball fan acknowledges as that absolute greatest night in baseball.
On a personal level - this means so much to me not as a fan - but because I was at the game in Tampa. I lived it. My boy was there with me. And it was my birthday. It was one of the most amazing days of my life.
