To expand on retroken's comment, when Bucky Dent was at bat in the Yankees-Red Sox one game playoff in 1978, he cracked his bat. The bat boy was going to the dugout for another one when Rivers held him up and gave his bat to the bat boy to bring to Dent. Bucky Dent then hit that famous home run. Dent was a very unlikely home run hitter and Rivers was long suspected by some of using a corked bat and it's assumed that this was the case for the bat belonging to Rivers that Dent used.
