Re: What is the most powerful baseball memory from your childhood?
My Dad's boss gave him tickets occassionally and the seats were right next to the walkway from the clubhouse to the Reds dugout at Crosley Field. We were about four rows back and maybe only 10 feet or so from the Reds dugout. It seemed like we could hear everything going on.
One day, Billy McCool was getting rocked in a game and Dave Bristol yanked him in the second inning. The fans were booing McCool pretty hard. As McCool walked off the field and down the runway to the clubhouse (just a couple feet from my seat) he threw his arms up and screamed at the crowd "I'll take you all on."

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
