It’s more than the ball sailing over the head of a dejected Jose Canseco and into the seats in right, Gibson limping around the bases, pumping his fist. The iconic images last just seconds. But if you want to know why Kirk Gibson’s home run, hit 25 years ago today, is one of baseball’s greatest feats, and if you’ve got the time, watch the entire at-bat. All seven anxious, delirious minutes of it. History outside the vacuum.

If you have no rooting interest in the ALCS and NLCS this year, here’s why you could root for the Tigers and Dodgers: it’s the only possible World Series that hasn’t happened before.

That’s one way to celebrate an NLCS clinch.
