October 14, 1984: San Diego Padres 4 at Detroit Tigers 8, F -- The Padres held a one-run lead in the eighth inning as manager Dick Williams paid a visit to Goose Gossage on the mound. With men on second and third and one out, first base was open for intentionally walking the powerful Kirk Gibson, who already hit a two-run home run earlier in the game. Legend has it that Gibson bet his manager Sparky Anderson that Goose, at that very moment, was talking Williams into letting him pitch to him. In fact, Gossage had dominated Gibson in the past, and felt confident he could get him out. Gibson strode to the plate and promptly responded with a three-run homer into the upper deck, clinching the Series for the Tigers, making Sparky Anderson the first manager to win a championship in both the American and National Leagues.moreless
