    Every game at Fenway Park. My worst experience was when Bryce Florie had his face shattered by a ball that was hit back at him.

    My favorite base memory are actually two of them. Once when I was a young girl of about 13 or so I was playing a pickup up game with some of the neighborhood boys. I managed a solid hit on a curve ball and by solid I mean I put my full weight into it. The ball traveled over 400 ft and cleared the railroad tracks and was still climbing when we lost sight of it. The boys measured the distance from home plate to the tracks and it was 405 ft. The boys were amazed that a girl could hit that hard of a ball! They still remind me of that everytime I see them and its has been 50 years at least. BTW i NEVER DID IT AGAIN!!!!!! My next memory is of watching an old time baseball game (played under 1880 rules) in an open space in front of a local museum that was temporarily made into a ball park. It was very strange to watch but i found it even fascinating as soon as I figured out the rules (had to look up a copy of them too). It went the full 9 innigs and finished 27 to 10 as the final score if I recall correctly. And just for the fun of it the women were all dressed in 1880 style dresses and hats and the men wore hats too (boaters?) I think they were called. All in all it was a very romantic and peaceful ..and very interesting day. I learned a bit about the history of baseball and watched an interesting drama.

    April 2007. A friend of mine had asked me to be there for her son's senior night and I enjoyed being with many friends that night. One of my last good nights before depression reared its ugly head at me about a month later

    Green grass and brown sand in the infield, sitting behind and above home plate and the ump with my fellow score keeping/data gathering buds, temperature in the 80's but the low humidity and slight breeze making it a most incredible "day in the park" afternoon little league championship play offs game Spring/Summer day 1989, and we WON WON WON!!! YEAH, GO MUSTANGS!!!! Houston/Alief, Texas. (Thanks to my son and 11 other great kids who at the beginning of the season, according to the "regulars" didn't have a snow balls chance to even win one game, and thanks to Coach... the Bad News Bears Incarnate!!!) Yeeaahh, memories :-)

    Day game, 1989, Fenway Park, Red Sox/Indians. My 15 year old son and I arrived wearing our brand new Yankee jackets. No sooner had we found our seats a Boston thug threw a half-eaten hot dog at us splattering mustard all over Jamie's new jacket. He threw it back and hit the guy in the back of the head. I hustled us out of there. Why would Yankee fans give a **** who won between the Indians and Red Sox anyway? We enjoyed the lobster dinner before we left town.

    Well, the first game I ever went to was pretty memorable. We're from the southwest corner of Louisiana, not too far from Houston and the Astrodome was called the Eighth Wonder of the World back in the late '60s. Anyway, I went with my parents to see the Astros play the Pittsburgh Pirates. Unfortunately Pittsburgh won the game, but I remember being amazed by the Astrodome. I'd have to say that the most memorable game I ever went to was a few years later in 1973. I was 12 years old and my dad took me to see the Astros play Cincinnati. The Reds had won the N.L. pennant the year before and although the Astros were my team, it was a lot of fun watching players like Pete Rose and Johnny Bench. After the game we waited outside the Dome so that I could get autographs. I remember Pete Rose and Sparky Anderson being really nice to the fans. However, it was kind of late in the summer and we had to hurry back home afterward when the news announced that a hurricane was in the Gulf and may hit either the Texas or Louisiana coast. I sure do miss those days when going to a game at the old Astrodome was a real treat.

    I have been to see major league games but none of those experiences, as great as they were, compare to my old days playing softball. I have never been much in my life... I was a loner and painfully shy but when I was playing softball I was happy. I was good at it :) My dad taught me how to catch a ball starting at age 3. We would sit on the back porch and he would toss it to me gently and I would catch it. Once I had caught it 100 times, I was pleased. The game was my idea, don't think my father put pressure on me to excel in sports! He was and is a good father and man. So I had been preparing to play softball since age 3, joined an all boys tee ball team at 4 and then finally moved on to "big girl's" softball. At 10, I discovered I could pitch too. The last year I played, I went up to bat, first pitch I hit a perfect line drive straight into left center. I made it all the way around to 3rd base before they got the ball back infield but made it to home plate in time but had to slide and I hated sliding! The game began great but our defense was terrible that day. I wasn't pitching that game and the girl who did pitch kept walking everyone. She would walk them or throw a perfect pitch so they got a great hit. We were losing bad - embarrassingly bad! Finally, my coach put me in. I threw my first pitch... strike, second pitch... strike and then finally a third strike. The rest were the same and we were finally up to bat and our batting was awesome that day so we came up from way behind to actually win and I was actually "someone" and I was proud of myself and happy... a very rare thing for me.
