I was at the first ever interleague 'subway series' game in 1997 at The Stadium…

Me too. Good one. Dave Mlicki shutout ... Todd Hundley stole home. 6-0, good guys.

Saw Simon & Garfunkel's 1981 Central Park reunion with 400,000 close friends, except not really if you read the severely revised crowd estimates for all the Great Lawn shows ... more like 100,000+. They established how many people fit on and around the Great Lawn by, you know, counting them.

Also, sadly, I experienced 9/11 a very short distance from the World Trade Center.

I saw Mike Schmidt hit 4 HRs in a game at Wrigley Field in 18-16 affair at age 9 in April 1976. Drove up with my dad, Grandfather and cousins from Kankakee, IL where they lived. Still remember his last home run landing in the basket in left center.

Saw Bob Forsch throw no-hitter in April 1978 in St. Louis with my dad and brother at age 11. In the bleachers.

Since this is kind of a music theme...

Saw Bon Jovi open up for Ratt in St. Louis about 1983 or so. Can't make this stuff up. Only reason I mention is that Bon Jovi was opening band and obviously ended up making it much bigger than Ratt. Still love Ratt "Out of the Cellar" record though.

I once sat next to Art Garfunkel and Jack Nicholson at a Yankees game in the early 80s. Chatted with them during the whole game, but it was a distraction as many people bothered them for autographs. May seem like an odd couple, but they starred together in the movie "Carnal Knowledge". (good movie, btw)

Default I was there...

when Gregg Zaun called his shot in the 1999 Hall-of-Fame game at Doubleday Field.

It was amazing!

I was on the patio of the Governor's Mansion on Island Beach State Park, N.J. in the early 1970's while surf fishing.The same place Christie closed down to have a private beach for a day. Caught a 5 lb Stripe Bass that day from the surf

I was really surprised that no one tried to 'save' him by pushing him back into the water.
