Relive one of the greatest moments in St. Louis baseball history with this ceramic 11oz mug depicting this play:
1985 NLCS Game 5
St. Louis vs Los Angeles
3 - 2
14 October, 1985
Ozzie Smith was known for his speed and great defense, not for his power stroke, but that's exactly what made him the hero of Game 5 of the 1985 NLCS. Tied at 2s going into the bottom of the 9th, Willie McGee had started the inning with a popfly for this first out. As Ozzie approached the plate the last thing on anyone's mind was that he would hit a home run. For one thing Smith had only hit 13 home runs in his 8 year career and none of them had been left-handed, which was the stance he was now showing to pitcher Tom Niedenfuer. But on a pitch count of 1 - 2, Smith smacked the ball deep in to right with just enough power to clear the barrier. Jack Buck immortalized the walk-off home run telling the fans to "Go Crazy Folks, Go Crazy."
