15. Hrbek Lifts Gant Off First

1991 MLB World Series Game 2: Atlanta Braves vs. Minnesota Twins: The Braves' Ron Gant (pictured arguing with Umpire Drew Coble) knocked a single to left field in the third inning of this 1991 World Series. As Gant rounded first, Twins pitcher Kevin Tapani threw the ball behind him to first baseman Kent Hrbek. Hrbek, in an attempt to tag Gant out, lifted Gant off the bag. Gant was called out to end the inning. The unfair maneuver was apparent to everyone in the stadium, except Umpire Drew Coble. Coble called Gant out, believing that he was off the bag through his own fault. Gant went ballistic. Braves manager Bobby Cox joined him in a classic screaming match with the umpires. The call was not reversed and the Twins went on to win the game. And every game after that. (Photo: AP)
