Bill Buckner happy for Red Sox victory
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

CHICAGO (AP) -- Former Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner is happy for the Red Sox, although he�s still a little miffed at those who blame him for a past World Series failure.

In the tenth inning of Game Six of the 1986 World Series against the New York Mets, Buckner let Mookie Wilson�s grounder roll through his legs, giving New York the victory. The Mets went on to win the series in Game Seven.

Buckner tells Sporting News Radio that this year�s Red Sox certainly deserved to win the World Series. But he bristles at the suggestion that it somehow clears his name after all these years.

Said Buckner: �It�s almost like being in prison for 30 years and then they come up with a DNA test to prove that you weren�t guilty.�
