Bucky Dent was really nice enough to return the 8×10 that i sent to him in only 6 days!!! Since he lives in Boynton Beach and i Live in Royal Palm Beach i guess the time was really cut down. Bucky even put the date of 10-2-78 on it. The date he hit  a three-run homer that gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead in the 1978 AL East division playoff game against the Boston Red Sox. It was notable because he was not known as a power hitter, having hit just 40 home runs in 12 years in the major leagues, and occupying the 9th spot in the batting order. The Yankees went on to win the game 5-4, securing the division title in the process. After the devastating loss, Red Sox fans began referring to him as Bucky “F@*king” Dent, and they continue to call him that today. Well thank you very much Mr. Dent!!
