Re: What is the most powerful baseball memory from your childhood?
As a spectator: The '99 pennant chase. I grew up identifying as a Reds fan but that was when I started to take it seriously.
As a player: The first time I got to pitch. I loved pitching because I got to be involved in every play. I will also always remember the day in middle school when I saw my first curveball. I stood there frozen for a called strike three... then quickly realized that it was time to start concentrating on basketball.
