Golden Pitch

What is Golden Pitch?

A term in baseball used to reference a rare situation in which a pitch being thrown in the World Series is one where the winner and loser of the World Series could be determined by one swing of the bat.

Sporting Charts explains Golden Pitch

For example, in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series between the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals, each of the six pitches that Madison Bumgarner threw to Salvador Perez could have produced a World Series championship for the Royals (had Perez hit a home run) or the Giants (had the hit resulted in an out or strikeout).

Golden Pitch situations have only occurred in a total of eight times during a World Series:

1912
1926
1962
1972
1997
2001
