Re: Chicago Cubs versus Florida Marlins - October 14, 2003 - Playoffs Lineup and other Game Information

This was my birthday and i was so excited that the CUBS were just 1 game from finally going to the world series. The excitement grew and grew as the 8th inning started. CUBS NOT IN SERIES since 1945.Finally i thought about to happen.All fans know what happened. the next day i was off form work and just had to find a quiet place to get over loss.

Re: New York Yankees versus Cleveland Indians - June 28, 1980 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

I was at this game at Yankee Stadium.Growing up in New York I must have attended over 200 to 250 games in my lifetime. This was a memorable night when Cleveland outfielder Joe Charboneau hit the longest home run I had ever seen in the 2nd inning against Tom Underwood . I will never forget that home run

Re: New York Yankees versus Minnesota Twins - May 18, 1962 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

Was There.With 2 Out In 9th Inning, Mickey Mantle Tried To Beat Out An Infield Single. About 10 Feet From First Base,He Tore A Leg Muscle And Fell Face Down Running Full Speed! Will NEVER Forget That Moment.It Looked Like He Was Shot! A Scary Sight To See. I Was (Nearly) 9 Years Old. (He Did Come Back To Win MVP That Year).

Re: New York Yankees versus Boston Red Sox - September 6, 2003 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

This game was my 1st game I ever saw at Yankee Stadium. I am a huge Yankee fan. I started following the Yankees in 1960. When the Pirates beat the Yankees in 7 games I cried. I was 10 yrs. old. I have followed the Yankees ever since. We had great seats right behind home plate behind the screen near the field. I still get goosebumps thinking about the 1st time I saw Yankee Stadium. I just recently found out that my wife spent 1000 dollars on these tickets. I guess she loves me. This game was also on my birthday. Even though they lost 11-0 I had a great time. My wife and I spent some time in New York City also. We had a great time sightseeing. PRICELESS!!

Re: Cleveland Indians versus Detroit Tigers - June 24, 1968 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

I have to correct my own comment regarding Jim Northrups 3rd plate appearance with the bases loaded- I confused this game with the June 29, 1968 game where Northrup had a a third grand slam in the same week. He had another plate appearance with the bases loaded in THAT game but he struck out. Seems like Northrup was always coming up with the bases loaded that year and most of the time, he delivered. Thanks to this program, I am able to re-live these games (and refresh my faulty memory!) love it!

Re: Cleveland Indians versus Detroit Tigers - June 24, 1968 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

I remember listening to this game on the radio and Jim Northrup actually came up with the bases loaded for a third time (after his two grand slams) but he made on out on that plate appearance (don't recall how he was retired)

Re: Philadelphia Phillies versus San Francisco Giants - July 13, 1991 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

I love this game. Darren Lewis made his debut (with no name on his jersey) for the Giants... Rod Beck in his first appearance of his second (and ultimately permanent) recall from the minors... Will Clark and John Kruk both hunting for the NL batting crown... Rain delay of nearly two hours... Greg Litton's birthday... Home plate umpire Jerry Crawford nearly threw out Phillies' pitching coach Johnny Podres in the first inning for arguing pitches from the dugout. Crawford was captured on TV yelling into the dugout, "We don't need you here!"

Re: Minnesota Twins versus New York Yankees - August 1, 1964 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

The only baseball game that my Dad and I attended was this game. My mother was also there along with my 5 year old brother, Mike. At the time I was 14. I remember very little of the game other than being there. One play did stick with me and that was Mickey Mantle stealing 3rd base uncontested. I know he also hit a home run but memory of that escapes me.

New York Yankees versus California Angels - July 23, 1966

It gives me great joy to see Mickey Mantle hit that grand slam again on the computer game! I was at that game, which was Old Timers Day commemorating the 25th anniversary of Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak.
The Daily News caption under photo of Mickey hitting this home run read, "Full House, Hearts Showing and Grand Slam for Mickey!" There is not a crowd anywhere today that can rival the crown noise that came with Bob Shepard announcing, " Now batting for the Yankees, number 7, Mickey Mantle". The crowd always cheered the loudest for him. He will always be my hero!

Cleveland Indians versus Baltimore Orioles - July 2, 1962

I was 12 years old and attended the game with my stepdad sitting in the upperdeck down the 3rd baseline at the old (and nearly empty) Cleveland Municipal Stadium. Dick Donovan pitched a two hit shutout while facing the minimum of 27 batters. Whitey Herzog got two singles being doubled up on one and thrown out attempting to steal on the other. Willie Tasby broke up the scoreless game with a homer over the centerfield fence in the bottom of the 8th. Woody Held singled home an insurance run later in the the same inning. This remains the best pitched game I've ever witnessed personally in my 55+ years of following the Indians. That includes the back to back one hitters I saw Sam McDowell pitch in 1967.

I kept score of this game from my home in Connecticut, listening to the Orioles radio broadcast on WBAL. The page of the Orioles batters is beautiful, 3 batters 3 outs in each inning. I think it was just as good as any no-hitter.

Chicago Cubs versus Cincinnati Reds - July 2, 1967

The day was July 2, 1967. The Cubs were playing the final game of a 12 game homestand of which they had already won 10. Jenkins on the mound. Cubs hadn't finished in the first division since 1946. That day they won 4-1 and for a brief time the Cubs pennant topped the National league. No fans left the stadium until the Cub Pennant was raised above St. Louis. My greatest Cub memory

• • •

The MOST memorable game I've ever seen at Wrigley Field. "Change that flag! Change that flag!" the Cub fans shouted until the staff put the Cub pennant above St.Louis'. We had to park around Southport -rare at that time. It literally looked like a freedom march walking to the ball park. We PAID someone to let us in line for the bleachers. It was said that 10,000 were turned away at the gate that day! Announced attendance was over 36,000 - There were over 41,000 if there was any! After the game, fans poured onto the field, even hanging down from the bleachers (this was before the basket and the main reason for it in 1970). Ernie Banks was on the DL but led a parade after the game outside Wrigley Field. What an experience! Sweet for me as my first games at Wrigley Field were 10 years earlier, vs the Reds and the Cubs lost a Sunday double-header. I doubt I will be there when they clinch a NL pennant, and at age 66, maybe not able to enjoy it in this world. My mouth got dry despite drinkin
