3. Aaron F**king Boone
After the Yankees managed to come back down 5-2 in game seven of the 2003 ALCS off Pedro Martinez, the ballgame carried itself into extras.
In the bottom of the 11th inning, Aaron Boone stepped up to the plate and took a Tim Wakefield knuckleball into the seats in left on the very first pitch to clinch the pennant for the New York Yankees.
The image of Boone rounding the bases with his hands extended outwards while Yankee Stadium shook and Mariano Rivera crying on the mound speaks for itself.
