The first Bluejays game in 1977. It snowed quite heavily that day and was miserably cold but nobody cared. Bill Singer started and won for the Jays and Doug Ault became an instant folk hero by hitting two home runs.

I still have the program somewhere.

Joe Carter hitting the game winning HR in Game 6 of the 1993 World Series. My great-uncle who lived in Milwaukee and knew some of the owners of the Brewers (Selig among them) arranged for us to get tickets. My father and grandfather went to Game 2 while my father, mother, a colleague of my father and I went to the game. I don't remember too much of the game aside from the HR itself and the crowd of people on Front Street after the game.

To me, the most memorable MLB games were all of the 2011 World Series games. Every game just seemed entertaining, since it was really fierce. Especially when David Freese hit a walk-off home run in Game 6.

I liked the winning call by late broadcaster Tom Cheek.

I once ran around the bases at Miller Park. This happened after Brewers lost to Pittsburgh. I have been to 3 other Brewer games there, one vs Mets, one vs Braves, and one vs Marlins on the sixth grade class trip which was they only time they won when I was there in which I also lost my mother's camera!

I just can't stop crying every time I see the Brewers eliminating the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2011 National League Division Series thanks to Nyjer Morgan, especially with Bob Uecker's call.
