The character of that Sox team is truly one for the ages.And thats from a National League fan.

That's easy, I was at the game that Nolan Ryan struck out his 5,0000th batter at Arlington Stadium. Ricky Henderson was the lucky batter. I happened to by in the left field bleackers that night. The crowd out in the bleachers gave Ricky a pretty hard time. To his credit Ricky was a pretty good sport about the whole thing.

I recall watching that game on the tube with some other A's fans. The consensus was that Rickey struck out on purpose just so that he could be Victim 5000.

I've only been to 3 games in my life, so it's gonna be a joke compared to some of the other posts on here. I went to a Tampa Bay Rays game vs. the Pirates and a thunderstorm was approaching. Lighting struck nearby the Trop and the lights went out inside for 45 minutes. It was an uneventful low scoring game until about the 8th inning and a Ray (can't remember his name) hit a grand slam to win it for them.

Off the top of my head, this one's easy. The Astros' Chris Burke, back in 2005, hit that dramatic game-winning home run in the 18th inning against Atlanta to send Houston into the NLCS. I still remember how I agonized in waiting for an Astros rally, and we got it.

Game 5 of the AL Division Series in 1995 where the Mariners (who had been down 2 -0 in the series) beat the Yankees.

Lots of great memories from these posts, but it's been 4 years and I'm sure we have some new posters with stories to tell....so tell them.

For me, there's memorable (good) and memorable (bad).

I was at the "Jeter flip play" 2001 ALDS game in Oakland, so that's probably my worst memory as an A's fan.

Best game was one they played in 2000, right when they became a contender again. It was Ariel Prieto (former #1 draft pick from Cuba who was a complete bust) vs Mike Mussina. Prieto got the W over the Baltimore ace. Eric Chavez hit for the cycle. And there was an improbable-to-impossible Velarde-Tejada-Giambi double play announcer Bill King dubbed the greatest he's ever seen.

Actually, I have audio of King calling that DP, and here it is:

The ground ball that went between Bill Buckner's legs in the 1986 WS. I was a big Met fan back then.
