Simple question: I just got back from the Baseball Hall of Fame, and it got me wondering about how many people on here have seen historic games, or just plain fun games for them in general?
Mine was June of 2007, Dodgers and Blue Jays. Dodgers were handing out beach towels that night, and they were leading 3-2 I believe in the 9th when Saito came in and blew the save and let them tie. Goes to the bottom of the 10th with the Jays tacking on another run and now up 4-3, when the Dodgers get a man on with two outs and Olmedo Saienz comes up to pinch hit. Everybody started to wave the huge beach towels around, which was quite comical, and then he then proceeds to blast one to the left field pavilion for a walk off two run homer. Dodgers win 5-4. Best part was that they used that game as a promo to sell tickets on TV the rest of the year.
I've been to ~half a dozen Giants game, all wins but only one really stands out and that was when Lincecum got 15(?) strikeouts against the Pirates. Also saw the Jays smoke the Mariners like 10-0 or something in TO like 5 years ago
Damn I've seen so much crazy **** go down at Yankee Stadium that's a tough call.
Probably either clinching the division on a Bernie Williams walk-off homerun in '04, Derek Jeter's first Grand Slam, or the only playoff game out of the 104 games (yes I count, and I know the W-L too) I've been to.
Manny Ramirez hitting a bomb into the 5th deck of the Skydome... I was 5th or 6th row, right behind the plate and it was actually incredible how far the ball went.
I just looked it up and it was 491ft, the longest ever in the Skydome. I also got Nomar Garciaparra's autograph before the game so that definitely has to be the most memorable.. I've been to better ball games, but that one stands out for those reasons.
Unfortunately I did not own a camera phone in 2004. The kid in front of me snapped a bunch of pictures though and spent the rest of the game showing them off. Also I'm 60% sure Spike Lee was sitting two rows back of me that night.
I was in the building for the Diamondbacks' second ever game. My family not only had 4th row seats, but the D-Back catcher at the time threw a ball into the stands after fielding drills and I caught it. Still have it too.
