Sid Bream's slide that scored the winning run of the 1992 NLCS is one of the biggest moments in Atlanta Braves history.
The CBS announcer, Sean McDonough, and the Braves announcer, Skip Caray both made calls that echo though time and will always be remembered by Braves fans.
Even though it is a iconic moment, I think the credit is going to the wrong guy. Just because the famous run was scored by Bream, why does he get all the credit?
Terry Pendleton doubled to lead off the inning. David Justice then reached, and Bream was merely walked. After Ron Gant got a ball in the air to score Pendelton on a sac fly, the Braves trailed by one.
Francisco Cabrera came up with two on, and singled to left to score Justice and Bream on the famous slide. Why isn't the bobblehead of Francisco Cabrera?
Sid Bream is a career .264 hitter and is notoriously slow. A bobblehead of him sliding into home is kind of ironic, since a) he didn't get the game-winning hit, and b) he was real slow.
Bream did his job on the bases, but Francisco Cabrera and Terry Pendleton deserve even more credit.
Maybe they will have Cabrera at the stadium to hand-deliver the bobbleheads to the fans.
