Here is a great card from 1991 Score. Ron Hassey and Danny Heep after a play at the plate, each looking up at the umpire waiting impatiently for the call. What's it going to be, safe or out?

He is . . . OUT! Nailed trying to score from first on a Carlos Quintana double, as Felix Jose and Lance Blankenship successfully relayed the ball in to Hassey.

Don't get too excited though, Oakland fans. Boston won the game 5-1, behind seven strong innings from Mike Boddicker.

And don't you gloat, either, Boston fans. You may have won the battle, but Oakland won the war, sweeping the Scarlet Hose in the ALCS.
