Pine Tar Silver Anniversary

 

With all this depressing talk of a sweep at the hands/claws of the the Tigers, lots of you probably have heard that this is the 25th anniversary of George Brett's famous pine tar home run off Goose Gossage.  A quick check of Google News shows a bunch of articles and clips talking about the game.

Here are a few articles that I found interesting (there are lots more):

A New York Times article

Sam Mellinger's Star article

MLB.com article which also has a video clip of the homer, Billy Martin's protest, Tim McClellan's decision, and the hullabaloo that followed.

I was four years old at the time and didn't really pay too much attention to the Royals until I watched the 1984 playoffs on a little black-and-white TV, so I have no real recollection of the incident. Does anyone here remember that game (which the Royals likely won, then lost, then won)?
