Great stuff. I bet that it decades from now Ichiro's inside-the-park homer will be a great memory for kids who watched. And Kruk versus the Big Unit.


The '79 game has always been a favorite for me, because it was a good game (especially Dave's fabulous throws) and also because it was the first season I followed the Braves and I was happy to see my favorite player on the team, the very cool and funky Gary Matthews, on the NL squad.
