This was the first baseball game my brother took me to. I was 8 years old. I remember Jerry Grote hitting the game winning home run. It just cleared the orange line they had on the wall in left field corner. It seems like it was yesterday.

This game will always be special for me, because it was the first baseball game ever for both my brother and myself. I was eleven and he was five. Not only was it Easter Sunday but it was Helmet Day as well. We sat in the Loge by First base. My favorite player Tom Seaver was pitching. At the end of nine, there was no score. Much to our disappointment, our father wanted to leave in order to beat traffic. Before we got to our car, we heard a huge roar from the stadium. My father turned on the car radio and we found out that Jerry Grote had hit a "walk- off" home run in the bottom of the eleventh. Some 36 years later, I can still remember it like it was yesterday.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
