8. Curt Flood

In the 1968 World Series the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers found themselves in a famed Game 7 scoreless dual. With Bob Gibson on the mound, Jim Northrup sent a pitch to centerfield that 7-Time gold glove winner Curt Flood misplayed the hit, two runs scored, Northrup ended up on third and the Tigers went on to capture the crown. The St. Louis Cardinals would win their next crown in 1982.
