An oral history of Kirk Gibson’s 1988 World Series home run

La Russa:

“So here’s what I thought. I thought, Gibby, he’s hittin’ on one leg. … My thought was, lookit, he’s hurting, I wanted to bring the outfield in because I didn’t think he could hit the ball out of the infield. So I was just trying to protect [against] the bloop. … So I was worried he was going to hit a ground ball through a hole or hit a blooper. So [pitching coach Dave] Duncan says, ‘You know, Steve Sax is on deck. And Eck’ll walk through him like he’s water.’ I said, ‘Hey, who’s the manager? We’re gonna pitch to him.’ ”

Crystal:

“So Duncan asked the same question I did.”

La Russa:

“Dunc didn’t ask it. He said, ‘Walk Gibson.’ I said, ‘I’m making the decisions here.’ And as we walked off the field, he says, ‘Dumb ass.’ “

Overland Park man buys baseball from Eric Hosmer’s World Series dash, loans it to Royals Hall of Fame

Then Lucas saw JB044155 and this description:

Session Name: 2015 WORLD SERIES GAME 5 KC@NYM

Session Date: November 1, 2015

Additional Information: BATTER — SALVADOR PEREZ, PITCHER — JEURYS FAMILIA, TOP OF 9, GROUND OUT

Lucas did a double-take. Wasn’t that the ball Mets first baseman Lucas Duda threw away as Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer dashed home to tie Game 5 of the 2015 World Series?
