How to quiet a sold-out Yankee Stadium crowd! It is October 11, 1964 in New York City at historic Yankees Stadium. The Yankees with trusted lefty Al Downing on the mound lead the series 2 games to 1. It is the sixth inning of Game 4 and the Yanks lead this game 3-o.
The Cardinals load the bases and up steps what would later be voted MVP, the third baseman, right handed hitting Ken Boyer. Boyer takes a Downing fastball into the seats and the Yankee Stadium crowd is stunned into silence. The Cardinals go on to win the game 4-3 in part to 8 2/3 scoreless relief work from Roger Craig.
The Cardinals go on to be the 1964 World Series Champions!
