Just imagine 1 selfish, no good cheating Umpire made 1 call to STEAL your World Series..... Then to add insult to injury MLB commissioner Peter Ueberroth was a spineless wimp or a complete Moran to allow the Same Dumb Ass Don Denkinger keep his rotation as home-plate ump for game 7.... WOW... The Phantom Pennant GIVEN to a Kansas City team that 99.9% of the time never amounts to anything... Office Executives these days are nothing but more money and less brains....
HEY ROYAL's and Their Fans, TRY EARNING ONE Next Time, if there ever will be a next time... LOL
The call most commonly held as the worst in the history of baseball occurred in Game Six of the 1985 World Series between the Midwest’s own St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals. The culprit, Don Denkinger, was the first base umpire. The series was at 3-2, with the St. Louis Cardinals on the verge of World Series triumph. In the bottom of the ninth, with the Royals losing 1-0, the Royals’ lead-off batter, Jorge Orta, hit a routine, slow ground ball up the line to veteran first baseman Jack Clark, who cleanly fielded the ball and threw it, without incident, to pitcher Todd Worrell, who was now covered the bag at first. He was clearly out and St. Louis should have been celebrating their second World Series win of the 1980s. Except, the umpire making the big call at first, Don Denkinger, ruled Orta safe, despite the fact he was out by almost an entire half-step.
