BASEBALL S GREATEST GAMES * 2003 AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES * GAME 7 * THE NEW YORK YANKEES WIN THIS ALL-TIME ALCS MATCHUP FEATURING AARON BOONE S HISTORIC HOME RUN
The theatre was Yankee Stadium, and as the stage lights came on fierce, longtime rivals the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox -- squared off to determine which would advance to the 2003 World Series. The two starting pitchers, Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez (combined nine Cy Young Awards), were poised, the crowd settled in, and the energy cranked up to a frenzy.
What unfolded was baseball drama for the ages. Boston struck early and shot to a 4-run lead, but New York chipped away led by core players and new comers who struck loudest and last. Fittingly, the finale was a Bronx Bombers blast as Aaron Boone s 11th inning leadoff home run brought down the house and closed the curtain on another glorious Red Sox/Yankees performance.
