The images are unforgettable. Dave Henderson leaping in the air as he gives the Red Sox new life in the ALCS. Jesse Orosco finally fanning Kevin Bass to end a 16-inning marathon and send the Mets to the World Series. Bill Buckner hunched over as that seemingly harmless groundball rolls between his legs and breaks the hearts of New Englanders. We've never seen a baseball postseason like 1986. All month long, Page 2 will look back at a most memorable October. THE SPORTS GUY: REVISITING GAME 6

Dave HendersonYou could understand why Boston fans thought '86 might be a year of destiny after Boston's dramatic comeback in the ALCS. Relive Dave Henderson's Game 5 homer and the rest of the Angels-Red Sox series.
Mike ScottFour one-run games. Two extra-inning contests. One of the best games in postseason history. The 1986 NLCS between the Mets and Astros was a classic. Just imagine if Mike Scott had a gotten chance in a Game 7.
Howard JohnsonYou know about Bill Buckner's error and the Mets' dramatic comeback, but there was a lot more drama in the 1986 World Series than just the 10th inning of Game 6. Look back on all seven games between the Red Sox and Mets.
