Best Baseball Moment

Postby CrazyPooja90 » Sun Jun 20, 2004 1:41 am

I was wondering what everyones favorite all time baseball moment is. Being pretty young, I've only had so many years to enjoy baseball. However if I had to pick one, it would either be seeing McGwire hitting 62, or this one time I went to a Cards game with my dad, and some guy gave us a free tickets cause he had to leave. Best seats I ever sat in. I was only 6 or 7 at the time. My dad was holding me when the cheerleaders came out with the tshirt slingshots. My dad leaned forward and snagged one, dropping me to the ground in the process. It was still a speical game. And he gave me the tshirt.

For me it would be Fransisco Cabrera getting the base hit that drove Sid Bream in for the Braves with 2 out in the bottom of the ninth to advance them to the World Series. And after the game watching Bonds sit in the outfield and cry. Well maybe not cry but he sure looked sad. I loved it. ;-D

I will double that one Kentx ;-D

It was probably the most magical baseball time for me ever. My college professors would let us out early to watch games. Everyone wanted to talk about the Braves. Tomahawks were everywhere. I was in a Rich's distributuion center and they had a giant tomahawk hooked up to a conveyer float which went all over the distribution center chopping ;-D

I miss those days :,-( I was at a Braves game last week with 25,000 listless fans :~(

The best moment I've ever seen on TV was last year in Game 7 of the ALCS when the Yankees mounted that great comeback and Boone capped it off with the walkoff homer.

I haven't been around long enough to see many other great moments but there's a few that I've seen and heard enough about to say they were great:

Ball going through Bill Buckner's legs ;-D

jk sox fans :-D

Kirk Gibson's walkoff homer must have really been something for the people watching it.

What a coicidence, my favourite memory is from the same post-season :-D Otis Nixon of none other than the Braves, trying to bunt on base with 2 outs in the 9th inning of the deciding game of the World Series and being thrown out by Joe Carter. ;-D

Carter's HR off of Wild Thing Mitch Williams over Pete Incaviglia's head is definately up there, but the first one is always sweeter.

Definitely Kirk Gibson limping around the bases after hitting that winning home run for the Dodgers in the World Series!

For me, it was the Sox coming back to beat the A's last season. I've watched baseball for my whole life, but I never really WATCHED it until a few years ago. McGwire hitting 62 was pretty special too. I think it was hard to not get emotional during his post-game talk.

The Pine-Tar Bat. The most surreal thing I have ever seen in any sport.


The Clemens v. Piazza bat toss incident is a close second. I watched it, completely unsure if what I saw had actually happened. The whole meeting had been built up so big and to actually have something happen was just crazy.

To me it will always be that last out of the 86 series. The Mets had lost and -God Bless em - came back from oblivion. Orosco's glove thrown in the air. Oh, that's a nice memory. Thanks for reminding me.
