Sid Bream

Regular
WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW HIM:
“The Slide” — the play that ended the 1992 National League Championship Series. Bream chugged from second base to score the winning run on a single by Francisco Cabrera to left field. The throw from Pittsburgh’s Barry Bonds arrived ahead of the slow-footed Bream, but he eluded the tag and sent the Braves to the World Series. Formerly a Pirate, Bream’s play has led some to believe the team has been struck by “The Bream Curse.”
