Magglio Ordonez hits bomb, sends Detroit Tigers to World Series [Video]

On October 14, 2006, the Detroit Tigers faced off against the Oakland Athletics in game four of the American League Championship Series with a chance to advance to their first World Series in over 20 years. Three years earlier, the Tigers lost a record 119 games en route to their place in history. On this night, Magglio Ordonez made his own history with the game tied at three in the bottom of the ninth. With one swing of the bat, Ordonez launched a home run into the left-field seats and launched the Tigers into the World Series. Coincidentally, this magical moment fell on the same day as the Tigers’ last World Series win.

Nation, where were you when this happened?
