Grote Slides Into Home in 1973 World Series
Date: October 13–21, 1973
Is this Jerry Grote making a promising slide into home plate during Game 4 of the 1973 World Series? We think it might be! Jon Matlack hit a seventh-inning outfield single, prompting Grote to take off from second base and try for home. Although the out ended the inning, the Mets went on to win over the Oakland Athletics at home, 6-1.
