84 world series. Gibson at bat, Goose Gosage pitching. Sparky Anderson couldn't believe he was going to pitch to him. He even said "I can't believe he's going to pitch to him. Gibby hit a monster shot in right field.

The right fielder gunning out a runner at 3rd base - awesome!

The pretty ballgirls in Philly making a play!

The sausage/hot dog/brat races in Milwaukee.

A high drive over "the Monstah" at Fenway.

Or one in the water in San Fran.

And of course . . . dog & a beer anywhere!

I sat in the bleachers at TIger Stadium my first game when I was 10. I remember someone hitting a high-fly HR that looked like it was coming right to me only to land a dozen or so ailse away. To this day a ball hit high and deep in my direction just seems to give me a buzz, heck the whole section is buzzing when it happens. Just thrills me. Maybe someday I'll catch one...

My favorite moment is the time that I hit that grand slam to give the Cubs their first World Series title in 175 years.

No hitter.

I'll call that and raise you.....

A great defensive play (usually an infielder) preserving no-no/perfect game in the late innings. Pedroia's play last year saving Buchholz's no-hitter still gives me chills.

If only I really didn't like Pedroia, Buchholz, and Boston, I'm sure that would have been great to watch. :-D


I was only giving an example :-°. You might as well enjoy every moment of your avatar bet ;-D B-)

Two things come to mind from when I attend a game.

First the simple one... During warmups, the players start soft tossing and for a few minutes they look just like average guys throwing a ball around. Then they move farther and farther away from each other to the point where I know I could never throw a ball like they do.

Second one needs some detail. I love watching my team hit a homerun when I can follow it from the batter all the way over the fence. For years it was important to me and I didn't know why I got so upset when I lost sight of the ball during a dinger.

Then I took my 6 year old daughter to her first game. Bottom of the eighth, Yanks down by 2, 2 on and 2 out and Jeter hits an opposite field shot. I get up with the crowd, follow the ball over the wall for the Yankees to take the lead. I look down at my daughter and she has her hands up asking me to pick her up to see what is going on. She obviously couldn't follow the ball with all of the tall people standing up in front of her. Hard to explain to her the ball is long gone.

And it hit me why following the homer is so important to me. It is so hard for a little kid to be able to do that. I don't remember if when I was a kid I wanted to picked up by my dad to see the homer long after it is gone. But I bet I did.
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium

My favorite is seeing a no-hitter. I'm very lucky to have witnessed Buchholz's no-no; and no walk-off homer or stolen base or triple or save in the top of the ninth has come close to the final 45 minutes of that evening at Fenway Park. Not even close.
