I remember seeing Jackson with a helmet sprinting to the safety of the dugout after the last out of the clinching game. But, that was from the '77 or '78 World Series vs. the Dodgers.

I believe Railsplitter is talking about the Chris Chambliss game ending HR to win the pennant where he couldn't even finish circling the bases because of the fans storming onto the field.

That sort of celebration was history by the 1990s, but you'd certainly never see it today in our post- 9/11, post- Boston Marathon bombing world.
