Don Denkinger

On today's date in 1995, the Royals beat the Cardinals in Game 6 of the World Series thanks in part to a blown call at first base by umpire Don Denkinger who calls Royals' Jorge Orta safe at first base when replays showed him to be clearly out.

"My mother-in-law was a basket case. People were calling and saying they were going to burn the house down."

I would think that in 1095, the Royals would beat whoever they wanted. ;)

Yeah, William the Conquerer was pretty invincible.
