1946 World Series Game 7
Slaughter's slide
St. Louis vs Boston
4 - 3
15 October, 1946
In the deciding game of the 1946 World Series it was Enos Slaughter's Mad Dash that gave St. Louis the winning run. At the top of the 8th, Joe Dimaggio had hit a double to score two runs and tie the game at 3s. Dimaggio pulled a hamstring on the play and was forced to leave the game with Leon Culberson replacing him in center field. Slaughter was the first batter in the bottom of the 8th and led off with a single to center field, but the next two batters popped and flied out leaving him stranded on first. Harry Walker stepped up with 2 outs and when the count reached 2 and 1, St. Louis called for a hit-and-run. Walker hit a double to deep left field where Culberson fielded it and and threw to cut off man Johnny Pesky. Meanwhile Slaughter was off and running and ignored third base coach Mike Gonzalez's sign to stop. As Slaughter barreled for home it appeared as if Pesky was confused or startled as he delayed in throwing the ball to home. The delay was just enough that it allowed Slaughter to slide safely into home for what would prove to be the winning run.
