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 voted this game the 13th greatest game of the past fifty years. It will go down as one of the most memorable and heart-wrenching moments in Cleveland sports history.
