Johnny Damon’s ALCS Game 7 Grand Slam vs. Yankees
It was one of those unforgettable moments in Major League Baseball history.
After fighting back from a 3-0 hole in the 2004 American League Championship Series, the Red Sox forced a deciding Game 7 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Could Boston do something that no other team in league history had done before? Could they rally from a 3-0 series deficit to win in seven games?

This was the moment of the series I remember most. Most doubted that such an historic rally was possible, considering it had never been accomplished before. But, when Johnny Damon smacked this second inning grand slam to give a Sox an early 6-0 lead, it was all over but the shouting…and the shock:
