Re: How Many MLB Teams Have You Seen in Person?
I got to see Cleveland vs. Texas in old Municipal Stadium 1989-ish with an old buddy of mine who had just moved up there. It was a young Greg Swindell pitching against Nolan Ryan. There were about 2,500 people there in an 80,009-seat stadium. Surreal. We sat in the front row just beyond the dugout on the third base line.
A couple of my non-Cincinnati games were memorable for various reasons...
Saw the Yankees play on the night El Duque made his first start. Stadium was crazy that night with all the fans there to see him. We just happened to be in town for a friend's wedding and got great seats for about $25 each in the lower section.
Saw the Orioles and Red Sox in Fenway before the Sox started getting good again. Can't really recall a single guy who played for Boston in that one off the top of my head. Loved getting to see Cal Ripken Jr. play in that stadium.
Saw Texas at Seattle (by pure chance on a business trip) on the night A-Rod returned to Seattle after signing that $250M deal with the Rangers.
Rounding third and heading for home...
