1986 World Series
Bill Buckner became the punching bag for Red Sox Nation after botching that little roller up along first in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. But believe it or not, now he’s BFFs with the man on the better end of that play.
According to reports, Lawrence Taylor and Mark Lepselter, his agent, were notified on Wednesday night that the winning bidder for the 10-time Pro Bowler’s ring was — yep, you guessed it — Charlie Sheen!
The baseball that broke the hearts of Boston Red Sox fans everywhere and turned Bill Buckner into one of the most famous goats in sports history is up for sale.
Seth Swirsky hopes the Bill Buckner curse doesn’t apply to him. Yep, he’s putting an Amazin’ memento — the ’86 Buckner ball — back in play.
