Pokey Reese's extra inning homer to cap off an unlikely comeback on a hot September Sunday in 1999. McGwire also hit his 60th for the second straight year that day, only to be upstaged by the diminuative middle infielder.

Not an overly important historical event, but undeniably an emotional one, much like the entire season.

I felt like they were a team of destiny that day. Little did I know that destiny was heartbreak.
