The Boston Red Sox were four outs from elimination against Cincinnati’s Big Red Machine in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series when Bernie Carbo was called off the bench to pinch hit.

Carbo walked up and jacked a three-run home run over the center-field wall, tying the score at 6-6. The game-tying blast set up Carlton Fisk’s famous arm-waving, jumping, 12th-inning walkoff home run…

…and if it wasn’t for a few banquet beers and a couple of joints, Carbo may have never paved the way for it to happen.

“I probably smoked two joints, drank about three or four beers, got to the ballpark, took some [amphetamines], took a pain pill, drank a cup of coffee, chewed some tobacco, had a cigarette, and got up to the plate and hit,”

Carbo said and continues,

“I played every game high. I was addicted to anything you could possibly be addicted to. I played the out field sometimes where it looked like the stars were falling from the sky.”

And you thought drinking a 12-pack before your college bio seminar was impressive.

Sadly, Carbo regrets most of his life but we wont bore you with those depressing details.
