It was a play for the ages - one that defined a game, a series, and a season for the World Series Champion Kansas City Royals! It was the 9th inning of Game 5 at Citi Field, and moments earlier the fans were going absolutely bananas for their hometown hero, pitcher Matt Harvey. After taking the mound with a 2-0 lead to chants of his name, Harvey walked the leadoff man, let him steal second, and then served up an RBI double to Eric Hosmer. Even though one of the N.L.'s premier closers, Jeurys Familia, was now on the mound, a nervous hush took over the stadium: comebacks like this were the Royals' specialty. After Hosmer moved over to third on a sacrifice, Familia induced an easy bouncer to third for what appeared to be the second out. David Wright played it perfectly, freezing Hosmer in his place with a look, before throwing on to first. Incredibly, Hosmer did the unthinkable - at least, unthinkable for any team other than the Royals! As soon as the ball left Wright's hand, he took off for home. It was a risk worth taking for the team up 3-1 in the series, but a surprise no one was expecting. Panicked, first baseman Lucas Duda rushed his throw home, missing the target by a mile, and in a pop-up slide, Hosmer scored the tying run with a howl heard straight across to Manhattan. SNAP! The moment is now preserved for all-time, and is now available for your wall.

This amazing piece captures the moment to perfection, celebrating the scene that would define the series, deflate the crowd, and lead to its eventual climax with a five-run rally in the 12th inning to finish off the Mets and take the Royals' first World Series Championship in 30 years!
