On October 25, 1986, Bill Buckner committed an error in the 10th inning of Game 6 of the World Series, allowing the Mets to win the game and eventually the series. The lives for anyone named Bill Buckner, including the Red Sox first baseman, changed forever.
This is especially true for Billy Buckner (born August 1983), considering he also plays in Major League Baseball. This Billy Buckner is a 28-year-old right-handed pitcher, and is the newest member of the Red Sox.
