Twenty-six years later and 8,000 miles away, Bill Buckner's infamous error in game 6 of the 1986 World series lives on. While Buckner might have made peace with most of the Red Sox Nation, these Kenyan kids still find it funny.

In a video posted on YouTube, a group of Kenyan schoolchildren are seen reenacting the unforgettable 10th-inning rally that ended with one of the most famous plays in World Series history— leading to a 6-5 win for the Mets before they went on to win Game 7 and the World Championship. It even has the Vin Scully's play-by-play call.

The video was made after the students expressed interest in making a movie about an American sporting event and it came down to Buckner or the "Music City Miracle." The kids are probably Bills fans.



Using a tennis racket and ball in an open field, the kids filmed their recreation of Mookie Wilson's two-out at-bat against Bob Stanley— starting with his wild pitch allowing Kevin Mitchell to score and tie the game at 5-5 while Ray Knight moved to second.

A youngster portraying Mookie then hits a roller to first base where "Buckner" lets the ball go through his legs and the winning run scores. The rest is baseball history.

From the minds of babes.
