Reggie Miller’s ‘8 points in 9 seconds’ was 20 years ago

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Thursday marks 20 years since one of the most famous moments in Indianapolis sports history.

That moment – when Indiana Pacers great Reggie Miller scored eight points in nine seconds.

His heroics helped the Blue and Gold beat the Knicks 106-105 in Game 1 of the playoff series against New York. The Pacers went on to win the series and go to the Eastern Conference Finals.

“8 points in 9 seconds,” as it’s called, happened May 7, 1995 at Madison Square Garden.

This week, the Pacers posted the video and Miller’s then-post-game interview on their website.

Re-watch the iconic moment here. http://www.nba.com/pacers/video/teams/pacers/2015/05/03/Reggie8Pts9Secsf4v- 3589894

BERT BLYLEVEN
1970-92
3,701 K
287-250
3.31 ERA
HOF 2011
The last of the 'trial horse' type of starter in the Roberts-Rixey-Jamie Moyer-Roger Clemens mold -- nearly 5,000 career IP, a figure that won't be touched in this era of the six-IP-&-out mentality -- he was great on that 1979 Bucs team (12-5), but then he & Chuck Tanner had a falling out, w/the mgr calling him 'Bert Cry-leven' etc -- then another WS w/Twins 1987

Blyleven 4,970 IP
Clemens 4,916.2 IP

Way cool ones Sang -- the one of Gibson is my favorite -- Busch Stadium, cool



GROVER CLEVELAND ALEXANDER
Ol' Pete -- unlike anyone b4/since
1911-30
373-208 W-L record
2.56 lifetime ERA
5,190 IP
HOF 1938

His # is retired in Philly -- & rightfully so -- just look at em, in that cool period sweater, With Bat In Hand -- compiled a 190-88 W-L record 1st seven years w/Phils -- best 3-year stretch of any pitcher in history (1915-17 -- 31-10, 33-12, 30-13)

His WWI accident was a crummy break (predated by the same injuries, by Christy Mathewson's untimely passing)

His injuries resulted in epileptic siezures -- already friendly w/the bottle, Ol' Pete became more, to combat the epilepsy -- & Still Had The Stuff -- ie his famous relief appearance in 1926 WS w/StL Cards vs. NYY, followed by his last great year the following season, 1927, going 21-10 w/Cards

"Grover Cleveland Alexander wasn't drunk out there on the mound, the way people thought. He was an epileptic. Old Pete would fall down with a seizure between innings, then go back and pitch another shutout." -Ty Cobb[18]

Phils brought him back for 1 final, almost ceremonial hurrah in 1930 -- he was obviously washed up but it was still the right thing to do for Ol' Pete -- FEW had the career he did -- in his particular cirumstances -- peace

Your photos are the bomb bro -- crystal clear & from my era to boot -- Alex Karras in bckgrnd of that Lebeau photo?





CHRISTY MATHEWSON
"Big Six" "Matty"
1900-17
373-188
2.13 -- no typo, 2.13 ERA
4,788.2 IP
HOF charter member

what kid growing up didn't have "37-11" in his brain -- the greatest season ever (1908) -- his HOF plaque is as short & to-the-point as one of his legendary "fadeaway" pitches
"Matty Was The Master Of Them All!"

Ty Cobb, pictured here w/Matty at the 1911 WS, included a photo of Matty in Ty's 1960 autobiog -- beside it he wrote "Today's homerun swinging boys would be swinging only at the ozone if they saw Matty...

Big Six died tragically young of mustard gas inhalation injuries during WWI -- his death came shortly b4 the 1925 WS -- the players all wore black armbands...
...have looked and looked TNAvail of a photo of a Very solemn looking Ty at the WS, his suitcoat dwarfed by his black armband -- have seen it published, can't seem to find it online tho

Johnny Evers, of Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance fame: "Big Six could pitch into a tin cup."

what a dichotomy(?) -- Mathewson & Cobb were celebrity-of-sorts captains in (this is unbelievable) the Gas & Flame Division of WW1, & in fact Cobb was right in the vicinity of the accident that eventually took Matty some years later at age 45 -- some soldiers didn't survive then-&-there this gas-release accident, IIRC from the various books

the 2 greatest players in the game -- in the **** ing Gas & Flame Division (according to wlkpedia -- the info suprhwy rocks for this stuff) -- whoever thought of that...

what an irony -- Christy & Ol Pete, both w/373 career wins in the NL -- & both victimized by similar WW1 gas injuries -- war sucks

Manny Mota

ON THIS DAY
(actually it was May 15, 1970)
During a game against the Giants at Dodger Stadium, Alan Fish, sitting with friends from the Poinsettia Playground in the second row seats along the first base line, is struck in the head by a foul ball off the bat of Manny Mota. The 14 year-old boy will die four days later to become the first fatality as a result of a batted ball in major league history.

WOW -- tough to disagree after looking at that photo -- all-exposed like that, it's a wonder the winds aren't worse there than at Candlestick (perhaps they are)



The next largest size blotted out the page, so too small (no in between) but 7 future HOFers in 1 photo
July 24, 1911, League Park, Cleveland -- oversize one later, they deserve to be seen in all the "glory of their times" (great 1966 book of the deadball era)
Occasion, Addie Joss benefit game (4/15 post)

Back l-r: Bobby Wallace (HOF 1953), Frank "Home Run" Baker (1955), Smoky Joe Wood, Walter Johnson (charter member, 1936)*, Hal Chase, Clyde Milan, Russell Ford, Eddie Collins (1939). Front l-r, Germany Schaefer, Tris Speaker (1937), Sam Crawford (1959), mgr Jimmy AcAleer, Ty Cobb (1936 -- in Cleve uniform), and Paddy Covington

* The Big Train -- 1907-27, Washington Senators
417-279
3,509 SO
5,914.2 IP

2.17 ERA

Could there ever have been anyone greater than the Big Train -- it wouldn't seem so
