1941 World Series, Game 4
The 1941 World Series was the first of 11 World Series meetings between the Yankees and Dodgers. Down 2-1 in the series, Brooklyn was up by a run in the top of the ninth of Game 4 when Dodgers catcher Mickey Owens dropped what would have been the final out of the game, allowing Yankees batter Tommy Henrich to reach first base. The Yankees would rally to win the game 7-4 and won the World Series in five games. | (Credit: AP, 1941)
