(Audacy) Heroic moments in sports can often make us forget about the happenings that immediately proceeded them.

A great example of that is Bill Mazeroski's walk-off home run in Game 7 to end the 1960 World Series between the Pirates and Yankees. It's the play that everyone remembers and is hallowed by every MLB fan, though it was actually Hal Baker's go-ahead home run in the eighth inning that was statistically more important. A completely different example comes from the 2016 World Series, though the basic premise stays the same: One great play wiped away the stuff that came before it. In this case, we're talking about the tumultuous Game 7 experience of Cubs catcher David Ross, who recounted the events of that epic matchup on Audacy and MLB's "The Run" podcast.
