This was the second greatest game ever played at McCoy Stadium (after The Longest Game, of course). Former rookies-of-the-year, Mark "The Bird" Fidrych and Dave Righetti hooked up in a classic game won by the Pawsox over the Yankees top farm team at the time, the Columbus Clippers.

The number of people wedged into the ballpark was astonishing. There were people everywhere; around 9,000 in a ballpark that held less than 7,000. It was an amazing experience to be there that night.
