    Playing the game: Being thrown out at first from right field. That's were I got my nickname, and it still sticks to this day.

    Television: Gibson's homer off Eckersley in 1988. Coolest thing I've seen. Roy Hobbs really DID exist.

    In Person: Went to game 2 of the 1990 series. Unbelievable. Bar none, greatest Baseball experience ever. Nothing will top it. I was 16.

    Don't feel bad.... I threw a kid out from LEFT field at first base when I was 13. He smoked it and I got it on one bounce charging in and he wasn't even half way up the line and I just let it rip. Beat him by a good two steps to end the inning. My coach told me to never do it again.... unless I was going to get them out again. Fortunately I didn't play left anymore that year.

    I hit mine extremely hard too. Wicked humpback liner.
