If I can impose on LINEDRIVER just for today I thought I would post this since we had a discussion going on in another thread about the 1972 WS. I found this interesting. I think I can remember Sparky talking about this on his radio show the following day.

34 YEARS AGO TODAY (May 16, 1972):
In the Reds 43 win over the Giants, Pete Rose knocks in the winning run on an
attempted intentional walk. On a 30 count, Giants pitcher Ron Bryant comes
close to the plate with ball four and Rose drives it on the ground and reaches
base on an error.

That's expanding the strike zone.
