The most controversial game in baseball history. Poor fella. If you’re unfamiliar with Merkle’s Boner, the story basically goes like this: It’s 1908 – the thick of the NL pennant race between the Giants and Cubs. Dude’s the youngest player in the National League. Dude gets the call to start at first base for the first time in his young career. Bottom of the 9th. Game’s tied. Two outs and a man on first. Dude comes up to bat. Dude hits a single down the right-field line, winning run’s now at third. Next batter up hits a single to center. Giants win 2-1… or do they? This is why Dude has a shirt named after him. #baseball #tees #SFGiants #Giants #cubs #chicagocubs #chicago #springtraining #cactusleague #merkle shop.cactusleaguers.com
