GAME 6 of the 91 World Series with Kirby Puckett's home run in the eleventh. GAME 7 with Jack Morris' complete game shutout is a close second, though.

The best game I saw in person was the tie-breaker extra game last year with the Twins squeaking past the Tigers into the playoffs after some crucial plays in extra innings.

God, those were some good games.

Kirk Gibson's 1988 home run off of Dennis Eckersley in the World Series. I was at that game and as a lifetime Dodger fan it was one of the greatest sports events I have ever witnessed. I was a kid who grew up going to Dodger games here in Los Angeles and, although I was a kid still at the time really, it brought tears to my eyes.

The most memorable game for me was game 7 of the 2003 ALCS, followed closely by game 5 of the 2001 World Series.

The most memorable game I ever attended was a game between the A's and Yankees at Yankee Stadium in August of 2004. The Yankees were down by a run or two in the bottom of the 9th and Gary Sheffield hit a home run to tie it. After that, A-Rod hit a walk-off home run in the 11th. It was his first walk-off HR as a Yankee.

I've seen two WS Game-7s , '82 and '85. Also Denkinger's famous blown call in game 6 that led to that game 7.

But I also saw Robin Roberts pitch a 1-hitter, beating Warren Spahn. You don't get match-ups like that any more. Saw Jim Rice hit 3 HRs. I saw Scott Dunn pitch a perfect game in the minors.

Maybe the oddest thing I've seen, four different players hit 2 HR each, in the same city on the same day. Wallach and Bosley in the afternoon at Wrigley, and Hassey and Kittle the same night at Comiskey.

I saw a game in St. Louis that went 13 innings, without the Cardinal's outfielders making a single put out. Even if it had ended in 9, it would have been the first game ever in which a team's outfield made no put outs.

Game 6 of the 1995 World Series. Back when NC was big time Braves country, my Grandpa who was a huge Braves fan was so happy he sent me a championship t-shirt. I also got another one from my dad. I was a pretty big Braves fan as a kid and seeing them win it all at such a young age was beautiful.

I've been to a lot of MLB games all across the country but to only one playoff game! It just so happened to be my first and only MLB playoff game... it was Game 2 of the 2007 ALDS - Indians vs Yankees at Jacob's Field.

THE BUG GAME!

Carmona vs Chamberlain. The game was awesome for fans because none of the fans had any bugs on us but all the players in the infield did. So, we really were just in a theatre watching all of the theatrics in front of us. The Yankees players - especially A-Rod and Jeter made the biggest fuss about the bugs. We boo'd the Yankees everytime they sprayed themselves with the bug spray. It was a really great time - especially since we won 2-1!

I purchased my tickets from a lady on E. 9th street for 90 dollars for 2 tickets in the upper deck between home plate and 1st base on the day of the game and went with my then-fiance (now my wife)

I've since moved away from Cleveland and am eagerly awaiting for the Athletics to return to playoff glory. (I think that will be next season) so I can attend my next playoff game.

^^Haha, I bet it was great fun to see in person the Yankees getting all vexed over a bunch of harmless mayflies! Worth every penny, no doubt.

Either game 7 of the '92 NLCS, where Sid Bream beat Baroid Bonds' throw to home plate, or the series clinching game 6 of the '95 WS, where Tom Glavine allowed one hit through 8 and the lone run was a solo shot from Dave Justice.

God, those were some good games.

Yes those last 2 games of the 91 World Series were memorable.

I gotta put a plug in for a simple regular season game ( I can't even tell you the exact date )

Bob Gibson for the Cardinals vs Tom Seaver of the Mets.
It was on tv, night game, during the week.

The Cards won in one of the best pitching duels I have seen.
