And don't forget one of the most memorable games of '05. Crede's walk-off 10th inning blast against Cleveland was on this date two years ago. I'm so glad I randomly decided to make the drive to that game and keep score. What a night. The traffic jam on the way home was awesome, because it was all fans leaving the game, and people were all cheering and chanting and discussing the game while sitting stuck on the highway. ha
