In the last of the ninth at Pittsburgh, down a run, with a runner on  base and two outs, Gibson hits one high and deep, so far into the  twilight sky that it disappears from sight, apparently winning the game.  The next day, the same two teams are playing again, now in Washington.  Just as the teams have positioned themselves on the field, a ball comes  falling out of the sky and a Washington outfielder grabs it. The umpire yells to Gibson, “You’re out! In Pittsburgh, yesterday!”
