This Day in Baseball History:
October 9, 1996 > A 12-year-old named Jeffrey Maier plays a part in the New York Yankees' 5-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles in Game 1 of the ALCS. In the eighth inning, Maier reaches over the right field fence at Yankee Stadium and pulls in a ball hit by the Yankees' Derek Jeter. Umpire Richie Garcia rules a home run, allowing the Yankees to tie the score at 4.
