Bill Buckner, whose botched grounder in the 1986 World Series became one of baseball's most infamous plays, died Monday at 69. Six others whose legacy is attached to a play gone wrong:
—Fred Merkle: A baserunning blunder by the New York Giants rookie in 1908 against the Cubs resulted in a tied game. "Merkle's Boner" proved critical in the Giants losing the pennant to Chicago.
—Fred Snodgrass: The New York Giants center fielder who dropped a fly ball in the 1912 World Series.
—Roy Riegels: Known as "Wrong Way" Riegels, the Cal player scooped up a fumble in the 1929 Rose Bowl against Georgia Tech and ran 69 yards in the wrong direction.
—Ralph Branca: The Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher who gave up a home run to Bobby Thomson — the "Shot Heard 'Round the World — in a 1951 playoff game.
— Roberto De Vicenzo: The Argentine golfer who signed an incorrect scorecard at the 1968 Masters, preventing him from going to a playoff.
—Andres Escobar: The Colombian scored an own-goal in a loss to the United States at the 1994 World Cup, leading to his country's ouster. Once home, Escobar was killed by gunmen.
