Happy Reds birthday, Ed Armbrister!


July 4, 1948

Ed Armbrister will likely always be best remembered for the controversial play in Game Three of the 1975 World Series. When Armbrister laid down a bunt in the 10th inning, he collided with Carlton Fisk as he tried to field the ball. Fisk then threw wild to second; Cesar Geronimo ended up on third and Armbrister on second. Three batters later, Joe Morgan drove Geronimo home to win the game for the Reds. Many Boston fans believe Armbrister should have been called out for interference.
