1981: Rick Monday’s HR beat Montreal in game 5

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We remember Rick Monday for a few reasons:

1) He was a good player:   241 HR and 775 RBI with the Kansas City/Oakland A’s, Chicago Cubs and LA Dodgers;

2) In 1976, he stopped two people from burning the US flag in an afternoon game at Wrigley Field; and, 

3) Monday hit a top of the 9th HR off Steve Rogers to put LA rather than Montreal in the 1981 World Series.   I heard it on the radio!

I think that they called that “Blue Monday” in Montreal for several years.

Great player!
