30th Anniversary of the Pine Tar Game


Recommended Posts



It's the 30th anniversary of the pine tar game.

That was also the same season that the Orioles won the World Series. ) :)

Ironically, the Yankees were also involved in the original pine tar game in 1975, when Thurman Munson was called out after hitting an RBI-single. I actually saw that happen live on WPIX-TV 11 up here, and I still remember it.




Jim Mason lllllllllllllllllllll Strikeout

Sandy Alomar lllllllllllllll Single to RF

Sandy Alomar lllllllllllllll Steals 2B

Bobby Bonds llllllllllllllll  Strikeout Looking

Rich Coggins lllllllllllllllll Walk

Roy White llllllllllllllllllllllll Walk. Alomar to 3B; Coggins to 2B

Thurman Munson lllllllll Strikeout ) 


* )) Munson originally hit an RBI-single, but was called out because he had too much pine tar on his bat.
