It was the first time I had heard the game (I was there for the first go around). Memory (at least mine) is illusive. That game still sends chills down my spine. Selig wearing a black and orange tie. Baker giving the game ball to Ortiz. And I had forgotten how suspenseful Scott Spezio's at bat was in the bottom of the 7th. Followed by Erstadt's blast in the eighth and finally Bond's gaff followed by Glaus's blast to left center. That game literally changed my life. Seven years and 10s of thousands of dollars in season tickets later, it still brings a wide smile to my face.
The following youtube link shows ESPN ranking it as the 7th single game comeback in sports history. Note the shocked look on Barry's face.
I am so jacked for the season now. Spring is here...bring it on.
