Key players:George Brett, Billy Martin
Punishment:Royals awarded win
Bottom line:In one of the wildest, most famed highlights in major league history, George Brett hit a home run in the ninth inning against the Yankees to take the lead.
Yankees manager Billy Martin came out to argue Brett was using excessive pine tar. Brett was called out, ending the game with a Yankees win.
Brett erupted at the umpires, and the Royals protested the result. After an appeal, MLB reversed the decision, and a month later, the game resumed at the same point in the ninth inning at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees at first wanted to charge more admission for the last inning, but they relented and let anyone in who had a ticket stub from the original July game, and the Royals ended up winning the game.
