Throwback Photo of the Day: Scott Brosius ties Game 5 in first November World Series
Brosius introduces the world to November baseball
November: The time for Thanksgiving, the end of fall, hibernating inside your apartment until April and Diddy's birthday.
Oh, and back on Nov. 1, 2001, World Series Game 5 between the D-backs and Yankees. It was the first time a Major League Baseball game occurred during the month -- Games 6 and 7 would later be played on Nov. 3 and 4. The Series was extended past October due to a hiatus in play surrounding the attacks of 9/11.
That season's Fall Classic was full of great moments (you may remember how it ended), and on this day, Scott Brosius was the hero. With Arizona up 2-0 with two outs in the ninth, the Yanks third baseman hit a two-run homer -- sending the game into extras and sending the old Yankee Stadium faithful into an absolute frenzy.
New York eventually won the game on Alfonso Soriano's RBI single in the 12th.
