    I was at...

    Insert famous Reds game here. I was reading the latest random thoughts thread and saw the mention of Hal King and it got me thinking...

    What REGULAR SEASON game of note have you witnessed in person?

    As a youngster, I marched in the Baseball Bunch Parade at Riverfront for Bench's last game.

    My memory of it is two fold: huge hands, bad breath.

    I was at a game where they beat St. Louis this year.

    I saw both of Larkin's grand slams in person.

    Sitting in the red seats on Johnny Bench night - seeing him hit that home run may be my best sports moment ever. I was just 10 years old and he was my favorite player by far.

    Also, this may not count, but I was in the pregame ceremonies for the 1988 All-Star game. It was cool to look in one bullpen and see Dwight Gooden, and then to see Mattingly, Clemens, Larkin, Sabo, etc. all be introduced, though I could not see them all

    Re: I was at...

    7th game of 1972 World Series, the game where Joe Rudi made the great catch against the wall late in the game, to save the game and probably the series.

    The game where Dibble almost blew a save, and, in anger, he turned and fired a ball (from between the mound and home plate) into the green seats in CF, breaking a woman's wrist.

    But left in the 3rd due to 90+ heat, seats directly in sun and raging hangovers for me and the wife. They lost the first 2 games of the series 3-0 and 7-0 and of course we were at both, so it was obvious that we put the whammie on Cincy that weekend.

    I think it was Taste of Cincy weekend and we went there from the game. On the way back I looked on my phone and just died a bit.

    I saw 2 Dunn walk offs vs. Cleveland (one I think was a slam IIRC) and 5/2/05 perhaps the sickest I have ever felt as a Reds fan. So sick in fact I won't say another word about it except epic meltdown vs. the Hated Cards.

    I was at Shea Stadium when Pete Rose broke the NL hit streak record. Man I'm old.

    I was at the 1st game after he was dealt in the package for Darren Lewis/Mark Portugal. Just remember saying where the heck is Deion and who is Lewis and someone in the stands said we just dealt him away.
