Relive one of the greatest moments in Cardinals baseball history with this ceramic 11oz mug depicting this play:
1985 NLCS Game 5
Cardinals vs Los Angeles
3 - 2
14 October, 1985
Ozzie Smith was known for his speed and great defense, not for his power stroke, but that's exactly what made him the hero of Game 5 of the 1985 NLCS. Tied at 2s going into the bottom of the 9th, Willie McGee had started the inning with a popfly for this first out. As Ozzie approached the plate the last thing on anyone's mind was that he would hit a home run. For one thing Smith had only hit 13 home runs in his 8 year career and none of them had been left-handed, which was the stance he was now showing to pitcher Tom Niedenfuer. But on a pitch count of 1 - 2, Smith smacked the ball deep in to right with just enough power to clear the barrier. Jack Buck immortalized the walk-off home run telling the fans to "Go Crazy Folks, Go Crazy."

It would of been better if it would of been like the one in the picture shown. After print company loosing order and finally getting the mug it was not like described or shown on website.
I was stoked my brother got me two Mariners mugs for Christmas (the Mariners are a baseball team in Seattle). This is the perfect gift for an M's fan. Great product, microwavable/dishwasher safe, and the perfect size. Also honestly, they would just look good on a shelf/mantle as a conversation piece. I use King Félix' Perfecto every morning. Thinking about potting a cactus in the '95 one. Bless our blessings.
