At 10:40 EDT on Sept. 26, 2007, two baseball games ended simultaneously. In St. Petersburg, Florida, the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 12-4 to clinch their 14th straight playoff appearance and eliminate the Detroit Tigers from postseason contention.

At the same time, umpire Bruce Froemming stepped onto the field at Comerica Park and waved his arms to signal that the Tigers-Twins game had been ended due to rain. Froemming's gesture gave the Tigers a 9-4 victory and ended their home season with a squelch instead of a bang.
