    Bucky Dent And Mike Torrez Dual Signed Oversized Photos Lot Of 3. We offer 3 dual signed oversized 16" x 20" photos by Bucky Dent and Mike Torrez. The Sporting News, once selected Baseball's 25 Greatest Moments and the "Bucky Dent Home Run Game" finished fourteenth (14th). They described the moment with this entry, "The Yankees were down 2-0 when the seventh began but had rallied. Chris Chambliss and Roy White reached safely on singles and Dent , a .243 hitter with four home runs during the season, came to the plate with two out. Dent lofted a 1-1 pitch from Torrez , the Boston starter, over the Green Monster-the 37-foot wall in left field-to give the Yankees a 3-2 lead. Dent's shocking blast was the biggest blow in a 5-4 win over Boston and put the Yankees in postseason." The mother of all such moments will always remain what happened on October 2, 1978 "When I hit the ball," Bucky Dent recalled, "I knew that I had hit it high enough to hit the wall. But there were shadows on the net behind the wall and I didn't see the ball land there. I didn't know I had hit a homer until I saw the umpire at first signaling home run with his hand. I couldn't believe it."Neither could the Red Sox. Don Zimmer , then Boston's skipper, changed the Yankee shortstop's name to "Bucky F*****g Dent."
