Today in sports history October 16th, 2003. Aaron Boone hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the 13th inning of game 7 of the ALCS to send the New York Yankees to the World Series and to send the Boston Red Sox home.

This was just another example of the heartbreak the Boston Red Sox continued to face especially in the face of the New York Yankees. The Red Sox finally got over the hump the following season by coming back 3-0 against the New York Yankees in the ALCS and winning the World Series. Aaron Boone is now the manager of the New York Yankees.
