Kirk Gibson Home Run - 1988 WS Some baseball fans would argue this is the most dramatic moment in MLB history: It's Game #1 of the 1988 World Series. It's the bottom of the ninth inning. The Los Angeles Dodgers trail the favored Oakland A's 4-3. With two out and a runner on first base, an injured Kirk Gibson, hobbled by two bad legs, makes a dramatic pinch-hitting appearance. Vin Scully and Joe Garagiola provide the commentary.

Sad Final Years of Jerry Quarry Jerry Quarry was an extremely popular heavyweight fighter whose best years unfortunately coincided with the heydays of both Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Quarry was a two-fisted slugger who possessed suprising mobility in the ring. A fine overall athlete, Quarry was a finalist in ABC's Superstars in 1974. His popularity landed him cameo appearances on TV shows such as Adam-12, I Dream of Jeannie, and Batman. However, Quarry's long career in the ring--he had about 200 amateur bouts and 66 pro fights--took a heavy toll. In 1983, six years after his last fight, Quarry and two other boxers volunteered to take neurological exams for a Sports Illustrated feature on the harmful effects of boxing. Although Quarry seemed perfectly healthy and alert, his test results were shockingly bad. By the mid 1990s, pugilistic dementia, commonly known "being punch drunk" had set in. This sad feature on Quarry was shot in 1995 when he was just 50 years old. He was under the care of his brother because he was unable to take care of himself anymore. Quarry was hospitalized in late December 1998 with pneumonia and died of cardiac arrest on January 3, 1999. He was just 53 years old.
