It was 20 years ago today, Sunday, Oct. 27, 1991, when Jack Morris pitched 10 shutout innings and Gene Larkin’s 10th-inning hit drove in Dan Gladden for the winning run as the Minnesota Twins defeated the Atlanta Braves 1-0 in Game 7 of the World Series.

That win at the Metrodome gave the Twins their second championship in four years.

Here’s a short documentary of the 1991 World Series, and particularly Game 7, produced by MLB Network last year (that’s why they refer to “19 years ago”):
