Wasn't there another World Series game between the Dodgers and Yankees where someone had a no-hitter going into the 9th but there was a dropped third strike and it allowed the runner to get on first and the next pitch was a base hit? I thought it was in 1941 but I might be making something up.
I know the game you're talking about, but it wasn't a no-hitter. The Dodgers were up 4-3 with two outs in the 9th when Hugh Casey threw a third strike that Mickey Owen dropped, allowing Tommy Heinrich to reach 1st base. The Yankees then proceeded to ring up a 7-4 lead, which they held. Owen was labeled the "goat" but much later Casey admitted that the pitch he threw was an illegal spitball.
"Message to all WSIers who think that Thomas will be a first-or-second ballot Hall of Famer-with guys like Telander holding the "Keys to the Kingdom" and openly campaigning against the DH-I will be kind and say You Are Dreaming. Thomas and his supporters are going to have to shout his case from the rooftops before the BBWAA finally gets the message. " -Some Dope on WSI, 2/13/2010. Whoops, that was me.
Then again, I think I have a promising career as a TV psychic. John Edward, watch out!
