12 Pitches, 12 Scores

To be historically accurate, this poorly scanned picture of a very happy Shawon Dunston wasn’t from Game Five of the 1999 NLCS. But theĀ feeling is very much in sync with how all of us were feeling when he crossed home plate in the bottom of the fifteenth inning to knot the score at 3 and bring the home team back to life. Shawon won’t make the Hall of Fame today, but for any Mets fan who lived through the late afternoon and night of October 17, 1999, that’s surely a technicality as regards his immortality.
