Today in Tribe History: October 26, 1997
Edgar Renteria ends one of the most thrilling Game 7 in World Series history, singling with two outs in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Florida Marlins their first World championship with a 3 – 2 victory over the Cleveland Indians. The five-year-old Marlins become the youngest expansion team to win the Fall classic. Pitcher Livan Hernandez wins the Series MVP award. Following the 2010 season, a panel of experts at the MLB Network will vote this game the 13th greatest game of the past fifty years. It is arguably the most heart-breaking moment in Cleveland Indians’ history and is often grouped into the city’s numerous sports disappointments.
