MLB Network Airs Game 6 Of 1975 World Series

Carlton Fisk slams a 12th-inning home run to give Boston the sixth game of the World Series Tuesday night, October 22, 1975.
Carlton Fisk slams a 12th-inning home run to give Boston the sixth game of the World Series Tuesday night, October 22, 1975.

Remember when Fox Sports Ohio last week repeated only four games of the 1975 World Series, which the Reds won in seven games?

Thanks to the MLB Network, on Friday you can see Game 6, with Carlton Fisk's dramatic walk-off 12th inning home run, which many consider the greatest World Series game ever played. MLB Network will air it twice Friday, at 1:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

Sports Illustrated in 2015 called the 1975 sixth game a "Game Changer."  Tom Verducci wrote: "Game 6 of the 1975 World Series was not only perhaps the best game ever played, but it also helped save baseball and forever changed how sports are broadcast on television."

An advisory for Reds fans: Game 6 airs on  MLB Network's "Carlton Fisk Day," so expect to hear lots of praise for the Red Sox catcher and Boston's comeback win…. as if the series ended that night.

Just keep reminding yourself who won Game 7.
