I mean obviously the best player I’ve seen live is Miguel Cabrera hundreds of time and I’m thankful for that. Best game I’ve been to sitting behind home plate during Armando Galarraga’ Imperfect perfect game. JIM JOYCE BLEW IT. I was in middle school or freshman in high school and wrote a letter to Bud Selig to get him to reverse the call. (He never responded)

SDS

Lets see, I've seen the Mariners play a lot seeing that I'm just over the border from Seattle so I've seen Ichiro/Felix Hernandez/ Ken Griffey/ Randy Johnson. I saw the Cubs play spring training in Arizona in 2016 (one of the best experiences of my life was watching the Cubs practice at their field) I also grew up watching the Oakland A's big 3 pitch the Vancouver Canadians to a championship (great times) I've also seen games in San Diego/San Fran (Bonds), and I went to the inaugural World baseball classic.

I've also seen Nate Pearson pitch for the Vancouver Canadians. I believe he's going to be an ace for the Toronto Blue Jays very soon.

Went to a Giants/Braves game at candlestick. It was free baseball day to the first few thousand fans. Well..... Dion Sanders was being heckled by a bunch of fans. Dion turned, gave em the bird and low and behold baseballs started flying at Dion. Pretty sure 90 percent of the balls given away ended up on the field. They stopped the game, pulled the players off and told the fans if they didn't stop the game would be cancelled. I was about 12 when this happened, definitally the craziest game I've ever seen.

One of the worst calls in baseball history. I felt really bad for Galarraga he deserved that perfect game it was a masterpiece.

Yea I felt terrible. He handled it like a champ though so hats off to him. By far the best game I’ve ever been to. Austin Jackson made an insane over the shoulder catch in dead center the inning before and the stadium went wild. I wish I could go back and relive that game.

Kerry Wood at Wrigley. 1st game back from tommy john surgery in either ‘99 or 2000. He hit a home run his first time up to take the lead and got the win. I sat in bleachers and it got crazy out there when he hit that home run.

I like to think that call was the driving factor in implementing instant replay. The discussions really took off after that call. It certainly sucks that it happened and Gallaraga didn’t have much of a career after it, but it helped to change things for the better

When I was about 7 or 8, I was at the Ventura/Nolan Ryan brawl.

Probably the coolest moment ever was seeing Frank Thomas hit a grand slam when I was about 10 or 11.

Last year I saw Trout play twice. The second game ended up going 12 innings and most people had already left by the end, but I was down near the dugout with a few people as the Angels walked off the field. There were maybe 10 fans crowded around and I was the only one wearing a Trout jersey (this was in Arlington against the Rangers, so not a lot of Angels fans there). Anyway, while he was jogging back in, trout took off his batting gloves and tossed them to the crowd. I thought he was throwing them to me, but he was actually throwing them to this fat kid (maybe 10-12 years old) next to me. The worst part was when another guy congratulated the kid on getting a cool souvenir and asked the kid if he knew who Trout was. The little fatty said no, and that he doesn’t really even like baseball. Smh.

Ichiro was pretty special to watch.

Best game I went to was the 18 inning game between the Mariners and Red Sox in 2000. At the time, it was painfully boring and long, but Mike Cameron became my hero for letting me finally go home. Looking back though, it was a memory and a cool piece of history.

That 2001 team was unbelievable I'll never forget that year or the year Ichiro broke the hit record. I'm a Cub fan first but I still like the Mariners and cheer for them when I can. It's a shame he never made the world series.

SDS

Saw bonds play a couple times at Wrigley, once for pirates and once for Giants.
Best game I've seen was 98 Mark McGwire hit 2 hrs and sosa hit one at Wrigley. Buzz of the crowd after McGwire hit his second was unbelievable

SDS

I was at Verlander's no hitter in Toronto. What a crappy day. Serves me right after calling hom overrated all week.

I have a better one for you. I skipped school and went to this game with some friends. I was a junior in high school. I sat right near McGwire all game long. He struggled and even missed an easy pop fly right in front of us. I heckled him all game. Then he did this, and stared at us after he did it. It was empty in the stadium that day. He heard everything we said and I’ll never forget him staring us down after he hit this. I’ve always told this story to people but never looked anything up about it. Well I just found it.
