Twenty-five years later, we remember Kirk Gibson's dramatic home run off Dennis Eckersley in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. 

The Dodgers put Gibson, who had injuries to both legs and was not expected to play in the series, in as a pitch hitter with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, and he responded with a two-run walk off home run to give Los Angeles a 5-4 win.
