Questions:

Craig Counsell

In what some have called one of the greatest situational pitching performances in history, John Smoltz, Mike Stanton and Alejandro Pena ultimately could not match this man's brilliant 126 pitch, ten inning performance. Name this pitcher for the Twins who willed Minnesota to a Game 7 win in 1991.

Jack Morris

The first time the Twins were in the Series after the move to Minnesota, they came very close to beating the Dodgers. In fact, this guy had to pitch on two days rest in the 1965 Series to beat the Twins in Game 7; still the only World Series game the Twins have lost on Minnesota soil. Name this pitcher who shutout the Twins twice in Games 5 and 7 of the 1965 World Series, including retiring 13 of the last 14 hitters he faced, earning the Series MVP Award in the process.

Bill Mazeroski

Game 7 of the 1955 World Series was historic in that it was the first Dodger World Series win, and the only one the team would win while playing in Flatbush. This pitcher won Game 5 and Game 7 for Da' Bums, and in doing so became the first man to win the new World Series MVP Award. Who was this pitcher who, despite his name, never pitched in San Diego.

Johnny Podres

The 1946 World Series, the first for Boston since 1918, was Ted Williams' only appearance in the Fall Classic, and ended in Game 7 with a dramatic Cardinal win. After Boston tied the game in the top of the 8th, this man scored what would become the game winning run in the bottom of the 8th with his famous "mad dash" from first to home on what would amount to a generously scored double for Harry Walker (some sources still list it as a single, to give you an idea on how weak a hit it was). Name this outfielder from rural Georgia who would much later join his teammate Stan Musial in the Hall of Fame.

Enos "Country" Slaughter

The 1926 World Series also ended with a Cardinal victory when this player got caught stealing for the third out in the ninth. Who was this guy who got caught stealing, later saying he thought he could steal, because no one would expect him to (the 1926 Series is the only one to end with a player caught stealing).

Babe Ruth

This man cemented the Series MVP trophy with his homer in the 4th inning of Game 7. Name this Pirate who hit safely in all seven games of the 1971 World Series, just two years before being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Roberto Clemente

Lost in the amazement of Game 6, 1975's Game 7 was also pretty amazing. This man started Game 7 for the Red Sawx, and left the game with a lead that would be lost by the bullpen. He (in)famously served up a two-run homer to Tony Perez with his patented "Space Ball" eephus pitch in the sixth. Identify this eccentric character who is currently running for Vermont Governor on the Liberty Union Party ticket, because of course he is!

Note: For full effect, make sure Sister Sledge's "We are Family" is playing while you play this question.

In 1979, the Orioles gave up a 3-1 Series lead to the Pirates who won Game 7 for their last World Series Championship. The Series MVP was an easy pick as this guy put the team on his broad shoulders and led the way, going 4-5 (2 doubles and a home run) in that final game, batting in 3 of the Pirates' 4 runs. Who was this immortal Buc.

Identify the teams that were involved in the World Series, when the following Game 7 exchange (allegedly) took place in the fifth inning, resulting in the pitcher's ejection:

Joaquín Andújar: "We wouldn't even be here if you hadn't missed the f@&$!ng call last night!"

Don Denkinger: "Well if you guys weren't hitting .120 in this World Series, we wouldn't be here.".
