Kirk Gibson's mammoth 3-run upper deck shot in the 8th inning of Game 5, which clinched the 1984 World Series championship for the Detroit Tigers. Gibson had hit a 2-run homer earlier in the game, and also scored another run when he raced home from third base after a pop fly to the second baseman. An incredible game and Series clinching performance, this is Gibson healthy and in his prime, hitting a home run which won the Series (not just won Game 1, like the homer he hit with the Dodgers). A spectacular moment from a spectacular player, and the single greatest and most meaningful home run of his great career.
