Watch this date 1989: Paul O'Neill kicks the ball!

July 5, 1989

Phillies 3 Reds 2 (11 innings)

A frustrated Paul O'Neill, thinking the game is over on a Lenny Dykstra single in the bottom of the 10th, kicks the ball to his first baseman and............ saves the game.

Thom Brennaman and Johnny Bench have the TV call. The field mic picks up a fan yelling to O'Neill, "get your head out of your #$%^&"

The Phillies won the game two batters later on a Jeff Reed pass ball on a pitch from John Franco.
