With October baseball well underway and history already being made, this is a good time to look at some of the greatest comebacks of all time.
A couple of this year’s comebacks even make the list.
The list is not comprehensive, and many didn't make the cut. The teams that made the the list, however, strongly deserve to be there. Either little was expected of these teams, or they had to climb to improbable (nearly impossible) heights to bring a struggling team back to life.
By mere coincidence, nine of the top 10 on this list involve—as either winners or losers—the four teams that remain in their respective Championship Series. The New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers—four of the most storied franchises in all of baseball—have been on the giving or receiving end of many of baseball's most monumental moments.
Before we find out if there will be more history made in October, let's take a look back.
