Great Moments

Baseball's great moments come up almost each time we are talking baseball. We identify with them.

I mean, I can remember exactly where I was when Kirk Gibson hit his 1988 World Series homer in game one when he couldn't even walk. And Jack Buck's immortal call of "I can't believe what I just saw!", gives me goose bumps.

If you're as old as I am, you can remember what it was like when the 1969 New York Mets did the impossible and beat the Baltimore Orioles in five games.

Can you imagine what it must have been like to be there when Bobby Thompson hit the Shot Heard 'Round The World?

This is my list of Baseball's Great Moments. In 1999, Dave Kindred of the Sporting News wrote his list. Some of mine are the same, but others were added that I think he missed. I'm sure you can think of many that I've missed, too.

They are written in no particular order. I didn't want to list them in order of importance because how can you?
