Sidney Eugene Bream (1960 - )
Bream spent twelve seasons in MLB playing for the Dodgers, Pirates, Braves, and Astros. Though known mostly for his defensive prowess, his most memorable moment came on offense. In Game 7 of the 1992 ALCS, Bream was the potential winning run as he stood on second base. When Francisco Cabrera singled to left, Bream didn't hesitate as he rounded third. Barry Bonds' throw to the plate was there in plenty of time, but just a few feet up the first base line. As Mike LaValliere dove toward the plate to apply the tag, Bream was able to slide in avoiding the glove to score the winning run ... sending the Braves to the World Series.
It is one moment in time that shaped two baseball franchises for years to come. They'll always remember the night Sid slid.
