It was a great time to be Minnesota Twins fan on this date 25 years ago.

Think back to Game 2 of the 1991 World Series between the Twins and Atlanta Braves.

It appeared the Braves were about to get a threat going after a single by Ron Gant, but that's when Gant wondered a little too far off of first base.

Or did he?

The Twins went on to win Game 2 that night by a final score of 3-2, and the series in seven games.
