You know who I’ve been thinking about a lot this week? Bill Selby. Maybe this has something to do with Carlos Santana’s walk-off grand slam – I keep thinking about that game in 2002 where Selby hit the walk-off grand slam off of Mariano Rivera as the Indians beat the Yankees 10-7. The Indians were down 7-0 as late as the 6th inning in that game (they started their comeback in the bottom of the sixth) before scoring 3 in the 6th, 1 in the 7th and 6 in the 9th. You kind of expect great things from Santana, so his heroics weren’t that shocking. I’m still shocked by the Selby grand slam almost 9 years later.
