      Billy Buckner is a big one. Although I feel bad for him even though it was a horrible mistake. And it wasnt completley his fault the management could also be to blame for their desisions.
      go sox.

        that is just a fielding error - buckner is no more to blame than any other major leaguer who has made an error in his career

          new york highlander owners frank farrell and bill devery figured their season was lost so they scheduled a football game between columbia university and williams college on 10/8/1904 at hilltop park - problem was they were due to host a doubleheader - well the season came down to the last five games - a showdown with the boston americans - the first yankee-red sox chase for the pennnant - new york was behind boston .5 games going into the first game on 10/7 - they won and reversed the standings - the teams had to travel to boston to play two on the 8th - they dropped both - back to new york for a doubleheader on the 10th - highlanders dropped the first game and it was over

                  Yes, but this is in the world series, when you have to be at your best. This may be a fielding error but it was the worst time to get a blunder esspecially losing it between the legs. That is a bigger error than an error made in a regular season game.

                    your obviously not a Red soxs fan then, every time i see that ball go through his legs, feels like im getting slapped in the face.

                      If you use as a base how much the error impacted the perception and future infamy of the player involved I would rate the top three as:

                      1- Bill Buckner's botched grounder
                      2- Fred Merkle's failure to touch 2nd
                      3- Fred Snodgrass dropped fly ball in the 1912 World Series
                      My eyes perceive the present, but my roots are imbedded deeply in the grandeur of the past. "Chief Meyers"

                        The Cincinnati Reds unloading Frank Robinson to the Baltimore Orioles for the 1967 season. Reds thought Frank was declining. Frank won the triple crown and had the season of his career.

                        Reds GM was laughing stock of baseball.

                          My thoughts exactly

                          Or Fred Snodgrass' muff

                          or I think, it was Freddie Lindstrom that the ball hit a rock in the IF?

                            Bill Buckner would not have botched that ball if the Red Sox had not sold Ruth over 60 years prior.

                              Would there have been a play at first if Buckner made the pick-up? I don't remember if the pitcher came over to take a throw to first. If Buckner had to make the play, I don't think the game would have ended any differently.
