520 "Never before in baseball history had a team finished last
and rallied to take the pennant the following season. Yet
in 1991, lightning struck twice as the Minnesota Twins and
the Atlanta Braves both reached the World Series. The
remarkable turnarounds resulted in arguably the greatest
Fall Classic of all time. Four of the games between the
Twins and Braves were settled by "walk-off" runs. Three of
them, including the climactic Game Seven, went into extra
innings. And all seven games had memorable moments--from
close plays at the plate to base-running blunders to
pitching gems to dramatic late-inning home runs. The
Atlanta Journal-Constitution cautioned fans about sleep
deprivation as the nation was riveted watching Jack Morris,
Kent Hrbek, Dan Gladden, and Kirby Puckett go against Tom
Glavine, Lonnie Smith, John Smoltz, and David Justice on
primetime television." --Jacket.
