The 45th Grey Cup was the Canadian Football Council's (CFC) championship game of the 1957 season, which was played on November 30, 1957. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 32-7 at Varsity Stadium in Toronto.
This was the first Grey Cup game to be covered on coast-to-coast television.
The game is famous for a play in which Hamilton defensive back Ray Bawel intercepted a Winnipeg pass and raced unopposed for an apparent touchdown. As he passed the Winnipeg bench, however, Dave Humphrey, a Toronto fan who was standing on the sidelines in front of the Winnipeg bench, put his foot out and tripped Bawel. After the officials huddled together for a while to discuss the situation not covered by the rulebook, referee Paul Dojack assessed a penalty of half the distance to the goal line as a sort of compromise. As it turned out, the incident had little effect as Hamilton scored on the ensuing drive and the game ended in a 32-7 rout for Hamilton.
