Down the Line
October 21, 1975 - not a seat empty in Fenway. 35,205 people in attendance for Game 6
(Baseball Reference) of the World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the Cincinnati Reds.

Boston’s season out of reach (Brown).

would not have been the most heroic act by a Boston player (O’Connor). Both squads stayed
stagnant in the 9th, then the 10th, even the 11th inning. No runs allowed, even in such an action
packed game. In the top of the 12th, the Reds...
