Papi's Heroics Part 2

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
It was seven years ago today that David Ortiz drove in Johnny Damon in the bottom of the 14th inning to give Tim Wakefield and the Red Sox a 5-4 win over the Yankees and sent the 2004 ALCS back to New York. It was probably the most physically draining of the four wins on me as a fan. In honor of that wonderful memory, here is a clip from "Four Days In October" featuring Game 5.
And by the way, I have mentioned a number of times that MLB was filming in the Riviera Cafe in New York where my friends and I were watching the ALCS, and they used footage from Game 5 in the 2004 World Series Official Film and in "Four Days In October." You check me and my pals out here. (And look closely for the guy wearing the Sox hat and home jersey sitting at the bar.)
