Magic Number Countdown…16…Looking Back on Perfection

Yesterday…

RickMonday

Rick Monday would patrol the Dodger outfield from 1977-1984 wearing number 16. His most memorable moment in a Dodger uniform would come in the decisive Game 5 of the NLCS on October 19, 1981. With the Dodgers and Expos tied at 1 in the top of the 9th and 2 outs, Rick Monday would deliver the decisive blow with a solo home run that would be the difference in a 2-1 win over the Expos, sending the Dodgers to the World Series to take on the Yankees. The day is still referred to in Montreal as Blue Monday
