It was one of the most memorable nights in recent baseball history on Wednesday as the New York Yankees faced off against the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox played the Baltimore Orioles. "Within eight minutes the world changed," said Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez. George Vecsey, sports reporter for The New York Times and author of "Stan Musial: An American Life," and Frank Shorr, director of the Sports Institute at Boston University and former executive producer at Channel 7, talk about those eight minutes.
