Relive Twins' Last World Series Victory Sunday Night

If you are fortunate enough to have the MLB Network, you know that they have been running a series of the 20 Greatest Games in the history of the game, as voted on by "an expert panel and MLB Network viewers." The Minnesota Twins have been featured on this series once already, with their "Game 163" victory over the Detroit Tigers on October 6, 2009. . .the last regular season baseball game played at the Metrodome. . .was named as the 16th greatest game in baseball history. If you'll recall, that game pushed the Twins past the Tigers and gave them the 2009 American League Central title.

Well, on Monday, the Twins will have another game featured. It's slightly higher on the list, and was contested for a slightly larger prize. Of course, the game I speak of is Game Seven of the 1991 World Series between the Twins and the Atlanta Braves. It has been deemed by the MLB Network to be the second greatest game in baseball history.

You can see the rebroadcast of the game on the MLB Network on Sunday night at 6 PM Central time, so be sure to clear your schedule or set your DVR or whatever you have to do. As someone that was fortunate enough to attend this game in person, along with my father and two of my brothers, this is one of those games that you will never, ever get tired of watching.

As far as it only being the second-greatest game in baseball history, the only game I can think of that isn't on the list already that could possibly surpass it would be the legendary Game Six of the 1975 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the Cincinnati Reds. MLB Network's number one game. . .and I'd be surprised if it was any game but that one. . .will air on Sunday, May 22.
