I don't remember the date at all but I remember it was at Fulton County Stadium, and the Giants beat the ever-loving crap out of the Braves 14-1 on a day when it was about 104° F and 100% humidity. We sweat like there was no tomorrow, and they lost by 13 runs.

That may be why I don't like baseball now... :rolleyes:

My first game:

July 22, 1998 - Blue Jays 4, White Sox 0

WP: Clemens (8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K)

LP: Parque (nobody cares)

HR: Canseco (27,3rd inning off Parque 0 on, 1 out)

Quantrill closed the game out, but not a save situation.

That was a great game... Roger Clemens shutout, Jose Canseco homer, saw it from about 20 rows up behind home plate.

My second (and latest) game:

June 25, 200 - Blue Jays 6, Red Sox 5 (13 Innings)

Starting Pitchers:

Pedro Martinez vs. Chris Carpenter

WP: Matt DeWitt

LP: Bryce Florie

HR: Stewart (10,1st inning off P. Martinez 0 on, 0 out); Batista (19,5th inning

off P. Martinez 0 on, 2 out); Delgado (27,7th inning off P. Martinez 1

on, 2 out)

13 pitchers total in 13 innings, a leading-off-the-bottom-of-the-first homer, a mammoth home run from Delgado, Pedro Martinez getting smacked around, an extra-innings win... what could be better?

I can't remember the exact date, but my first game was some time in August 1977 @ Fenway Park.

The next game I remember was this one, Boston against Seattle, with a continuation of a suspended 20-inning game the night before.

And then this one, on my 10th birthday. Boston won in the bottom of the 9th. I was bummed out because Glenn Hoffman, the winning run, wouldn't sign autographs. But my mother gave my glove to a security guard, who brought it in the Sox lock room, and I got Jim Rice's (my favorite player) autograph. I used that glove until I outgrew it at 14, and the sig has almost worn off.

This wasn't my first, but it's the first I can remember the date for (the day after my 8th birthday):

Game Played on April 7, 1993 (D) at Shea Stadium

New York Mets 6, Colorado Rockies 1

W - Saberhagen (1-0), L - Ruffin (0-1)

Dante Bichette hits the first home run in Rockies history.

(Later that year, I read a biography of Lou Gehrig and convert to Yankeeism)

wow, I don't even remeber my first game. I think it was in 1993 against Cleveland at Yankee Stadium. I was 5 at the time. I don't remeber the date not the score. In fact I'm not sure they played the Indians, they may have played the tigers.

First Game was a great extra inning affair against the Dodgers:

April 20, 1985

San Diego 4, Los Angeles 3 (10) at Jack Murphy Stadium

WP: Rich "Goose" Gossage

LP: Jay Howell

I remember this because the crowd all shouted "GOOOOOOOOSE" when he came in and I thought they were booing him and I got mad.

Next game was July 4th, 1986

San Diego 2, Chicago 1

WP: Rich "Goose" Gossage

LP: Ray Fontenot

I remember this because Davey Lopes got hit to start the game and was wriggling around on the ground like he was dying. Being the young kid I was, I thought he was seriously injured so it had a profound effect on me. Looking at the boxscore I guess I got to see a rarity...Bruce Bochy hit a home run in that game.

Both of these games were the only ones my dad ever took me too. <_<

i've never been to an MLB game :cry: and i don't even remember the first game i watched on tv. i clearly remember a bears playoff loss in 88 and super bowl xxii, but i don't remember the first time i really watched baseball...hm.

last baseball game i saw in person(a high school game, and i'd just graduated), however, i had the good fortune of seeing a no-hitter...a somewhat sloppy one with a few errors and walks sprinkled in, but a no-no nonetheless.
