DLD 4/25: "I'll always remember..."

The hell with stats - who needs 'em?  I'll always remember baseball for other reasons.  Why, not even counting my childhood memories of the A's...

I'll always remember when Eric Chavez became my favorite player.

I'll always remember Frank Menechino's 11-pitch at-bat against Saberhagen that resulted in a tie-breaking 2-run single, and big ol' high-five to my dad.

I'll always remember lying on my bed and relaxing to the sound Bill King calling a double-steal.

I'll always remember Scott Hatteberg rounding first base.

I'll always remember my dad and I calling each other simultaneously when Ramon Hernandez dropped his beautiful bunt.

I'll always remember bitching about Arthur Rhodes to another A's fan...in Cairo, Egypt.

I'll always remember Justin Duchscherer abusing Pedro Feliz with a ridiculous curveball to seal this victory .

I'll always remember the time that Mark Kotsay got really pissed, waved off the rightfielder, made the catch, and then gunned down a baserunner.

I'll always remember some random relative coming up to me during the pre-wedding celebration and whispering, "we won. "

I'll always remember Nico's game thread , "On to the 11th in a game you will always remember."

I'll always remember watching Marco Scutaro clear the bases with poetwee, ArakSOT, and some other ANer whose name I can't remember in a Cambridge bar.

I'll always remember my wife saying she had to work late that night and couldn't make it to the bar...and then surprising me by showing up for the last two innings.

I'll always remember Marco Scutaro.

I'll always remember watching Kurt Suzuki's walkoff single in the hospital with my two-day old son in my arms and telling him, "There's more where that came from."
