I was at David Righetti's 4th of July no hitter at Yankee Stadium vs the Red Sox.

I forget the date, but it was Seattle against Kansas City in the Kingdome. 1999 maybe? Dan Wilson hit an inside-the-park grand salami.

5/5/2000, visited a relative in the DFW suburbs. Oakland was in town playing the Rangers and we went. It was an uncomfortably muggy evening.

A's were up 15-7 at the 7th inning stretch. There was a big Cinco de Mayo fireworks after the game, so we decided to stay even though it was a blowout. The Rangers ended up coming back to win 17-16, with a walk-off in the bottom of the 9th. It was an over 4 hr game and I think the A's went through 6 pitchers and the Rangers went through 4 of their own.

Chipper Jones' last game which was the first Wild Card game ever, and was plagued with the 174 foot infield fly rule call that cost the Braves a big inning. I'm not one who believes that we would have won if that hadn't happened, Chipper had two throwing errors and we couldn't hit with RISP, but man, that call sucked.

I am a Yankees fan married in to a Dodgers family. But this is by far the most memorable game I attended. It wasn't just the grand slam, it was everything leading up to it.

I went to the last game at the old Yankee Stadium on 9/21/08 against Baltimore. The game itself wasn't all too memorable, but the spectacle of seeing such a historic venue close up shop was pretty amazing with the old players that came out, Derek Jeters post game speech, etc. Not a Yankee fan, but as a baseball fan I wish they had renovated/remodeled that stadium instead of razing it and moving to a new mega park. It just isn't the same now

Game 6 of the 1993 World Series.. Joe Carter's Walk Off HR.. Been a Phillies fan my whole life.. I was a bit young to enjoy the 1980 win and that 93 season was just so magical..

After the devastating loss in Game 4, Schilling's masterpiece in Game 5 and then coming back from being down 5-1 in Game 6.. I was expecting it to go to a game 7.. Then it all came apart.

This game is more memorable than even the Game 5 in the 2008 series where the Phillies won it. And that game lasted two days.

2014 Wildcard Game AL.. Oakland and Kansas City.. I was there.. Don't think that can be topped being at unless it was a World Series game clincher like that.. 2nd runner up but much longer and not near the suspence.. Game 1 of the 2015 World Series with the Mets and Royals that went 14 innings and had a Fox TV outage delay
