Dave RobertsIn Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS, with the Sox down 4-3 to the Yankees in the ninth inning, Roberts stole second base to keep the Sox alive. It was the most memorable swipe in Red Sox history. Roberts pinch ran for Kevin Millar. Yankee reliever Mariano Rivera would keep Roberts close but he sprinted to second on the first pitch to Bill Mueller and slid head-first into the bag. Jorge Posada's throw was just inches to the shortstop side as the quick tag by Derek Jeter was a split-second too late. Mueller followed with a single, scoring Roberts with the tying run. The Sox went on to win in 12 innings and begin their run of eight straight wins, culminating in a World Series title. "It has truly impacted my life," Roberts said in 2005. "People are often remembered for one thing in their career, whether it's good or bad. Fortunately for me, that stolen base is embedded in people's minds."
