Default Some of the most fun I've ever had at a ballgame

Went to a San Jose Giants game today. No that's not a typo - it's a minor league affiliate of the SF team. Fun little ballpark, friend says it's one of the oldest if not the oldest minor league stadiums around. Giants are losing all game 2-0 after 5-0 a few innings later, fight back to get to 6-5 but can't get the tying run across though they have several opportunities. Top of the ninth Modesto adds two more and it's 8-5. People start leaving but our group stuck around.

1-out single, then another out. Two strikes, single, first and third. full count walk now the bases are loaded. Next batter gets down 1-2 then pokes one down the line just inside the pole and just above the wall for the bottom of the 9th inning 2-out 2-strike walk off grand slam for a 1-run win.

Giants were down to their final strike 3 times in the final inning and still went on to win. Baseball can be so much fun sometimes. The 500 of us left in the building had a grand old time walking out.

Some of the most fun I had at a ball game was 1979 some how got box seats maybe 10 rows back on the 3rd base side. Sat there laughing and (at 18) drinking beer with my date who was a fun and pretty girl. I don't remember the opponent, but what I do remember is in the 9th the White Sox were winning and did not get up to hit because the game was over, and we were kind of surprised that it was suddenly over. Having so much fun at that game we would have preferred extra innings.
