This seems like a good idea from MLB Network, as the theme of historic walk-off victories is a great theme to help baseball fans get their fix. They made sure to pick several good games to watch.
The Minnesota Twins victory over the Braves stands out as one of the greatest victories in team history, giving the team their second World Series title and Jack Morris the 1991 World Series MVP trophy. It was also the last time Kirby Puckett and Kent Hrbek, two Twins legends, got to see the playoffs.
