Infographic: Recalling Sid Bream’s legendary slide in Game 7 of 1992 NLCS


Arguably no slide in MLB postseason history is as hotly debated as the one Sid Bream pulled during Game 7 of the 1992 National League Championship Series, as it punched the Atlanta Braves’ ticket to the World Series.

Bream’s slide proved to be the game-winning run as the Braves staged a remarkable rally after heading into the bottom of the 9th inning down 2-0 to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Pirates outfielder Barry Bonds’ throw may have beat Bream to home after Francisco Cabrera hit a single to left field, but Bream’s miraculous slide after David Justice had easily scored before him proved to be the difference.

For every Braves fan who insists Bream was safe, there is a still-bitter, still-heartbroken Pirates fan willing to debate the play until they’re blue in the face. But it is what it is — Bream was safe, by the way — and it remains a play that still proves captivating to this day.

Coverage of the Division Series returns to FOX Sports for the first time since 2006, with FOX Sports 1 set to air eight of 10 National League Division Series games.
