I like to see the pitchers warm up in the bullpen before the game.
In game I love to see a runner get gunned down trying to steal.

I love the top of the 9th when the home team's winning. It's contagiously exciting from the moment the door opens for the closer to come in...everyone's at full throttle in the stands...people are standing and going nuts over every single strike...the anticipation/excitement for that final out is unbeatable.

My favorite is still the triple. To see that much speed on the base paths, going out at top speed and beating a close throw to change the momentum. The most exciting play in baseball. Honorable mention will have to go to the straight steal for home, that's pretty cool as well.

Easy answer..
Walk Off Homer.

Can you really top that. Granted I have never witnessed a no-hitter, but still a WalkOff just gets you so pumped.

Gotta be the walk-off homerun. I still remember Dunn blasting a grand-slam walf off against the Tribe 2 years ago at GABP. Even though the Tribe blew a pretty big lead, it was still the most fun Ive had at a ball game.

Damn you Adam Dunn. :-b

Watching a no hitter reach the 6th/7th inning. It starts to get pretty tense then.

When Randy Johnson hit that bird... Man do I wish I had High-Def back then. I was watching the game, then Randy Johnson throws a pitch normally and all of a sudden you just see the feathers everywhere. I thought it was a joke or something at first, but then the replays comes in. That was just amazing.

I could argue for the bases loaded K in the bottom of the 9th to end the game (home team win). It tends to be built up to more, because people can see it developing as compared to the walk off HR in which people are sometimes taken by surprise.
