2003 ALCS Game 7
Walk-off to the World Series
New York vs. Boston
6 - 5
October 16, 2003
Yankee Stadium, New York, NY
Aaron Boone became an incredibly likely postseason hero in Game 7 of 2003's ALCS. The 2003 ALCS had been a close series. Both New York and Boston were stocked with talent and three of the ALCS games had been won by two or fewer runs. Game 7 at Yankee Stadium was the closest of all. New York was down 2 - 5 going into the bottom of the 8th and rallied on RBIs from Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada to tie the game at 5s. That sent the game into extra innings, with both teams failing to score into the 11th. Boone hadn't started the game and was hitting just .125 when he stepped up to face Tim Wakefield in the bottom of the 11th. With zero hesitation he took Wakefield's first pitch deep to left field for a walk-off home run that would send New York to the World Series and extend the Curse of the Bambino another year.

2001 ALDS Game 3
Jeter's cover
New York vs. Oakland
1 - 0
October 13, 2001
Network Associtates Coliseum, Oakland, CA
In the most iconic play of his career, Jeter seemingly presciently moved to the perfect spot to grab a long throw from Spencer and then tossed a perfect backhanded flip to Posada that just barely beat Giambi to the plate. The play ended the inning and preserved the Yankees' lead.

1996 World Series Game 4
23rd World Series title
New York vs. Atlanta
8 - 6
October 23, 1996
Fulton County Stadium, Atlanta, GA
It had been 18 long years since New York had last won a World Series, and through the first couple games of the '96 series it wasn't looking like New York was going to get another championship. Atlanta was looking to repeat and outscored New York 19 - 1 in the first two games. New York won the next one, but fell behind quickly in Game 4 and going into the 8th they were trailing 3 - 6. Charlie Hayes then Darryl Strawberry both reached base on singles. Mariano Duncan grounded out, getting Strawberry out at second but avoiding a double play. That left two men on base with one out with Jim Leyritz coming to the plate with a chance to tie the game. Leyritz hadn't even started the game but he worked a great at bat and then hit a shot to left field to tie the game at 6 a piece. The home run was a major momentum turner for New York who went on to win the game and then the next two for their 23rd World Series Championship and the start of the 90s New York dynasty.

1978 AL East tie-breaker
Bucky F'in Dent
New York vs. Boston
5 - 4
October 2, 1978
Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts
At the end of the 1978 season, New York and Boston were tied for first in the AL East, necessitating a tie-breaker. The game was played at Fenway and Boston were leading by 2 going into the 7th. In a turn no one would have guessed, Bucky Dent became the hero of the game with a 3 run shot over the Green Monster. With two outs and two on in the 7th it seemed much more likely that weak-hitting Dent would get out, especially after he painfully fouled his second pitch into his ankle. That's when Mickey Rivers sent the bat boy out with his bat for Bucky, telling that bat boy to convey that the bat had "lots of hits in it. He'll get a home run." And get one he did propel him to New York and Boston lore as "Bucky F'in Dent." New York would go on to win the 1978 World Series and get their 22nd Championship.
