Default What's Your Favorite Memory of This, the Year of the Homerun?

Was it the new statistics such as exit velocity that were produced to keep the pinball-like atmosphere sufficiently described?

Was it Giancarlo's #59, which topped the new stat of exit velocity at 118MPH?

Was it the a player named Scooter joined the elite 4-HR game list and hit four grand-slams?

Was it the fact that just one year after surrendering one of the most famous homeruns of all-time, every single ML pitcher who faced him in the batter's box this year, somehow contained Bartolo Colon and kept him in the park?

What's your favorite?

Not a specific event, this is the first time in many many years I have enjoyed baseball again. I can't even count the number of games I have watched this year on tv. I also attended my first game in many many years. Kinda weird watching a Yankees or Red Sox game and not knowing a single player on either team. Yes I am one of those really weird people as they are my favorite 2 teams.

Fixed that for you. Watching the slugging of the Diamondbacks this season is amazing.

Couldn't help with the sarcasm as a Diamondbacks fan. Too bad J.D. will probably walk in the off-season.

I have really enjoyed following the rookie season of Aaron Judge. And there is a very nice close race for the NL Cy Young - Kershaw vs. Scherzer (but Strasburg has been lights out lately).

I was able to attend a Chicago vs Chicago game while in town for the National. By far my favorite Baseball memory of the season. Pretty heated fan rivalry. I saw and heard alot at that game

Judge having a monster rookie season!

I have also really enjoyed watching the Cleveland Indians this year, I have become a huge Jose Ramirez fan. I really wish my Cardinals would have hired Francona instead of Matheny. I feel like we would have won a lot more games!
