I'm really interested in hearing the stories from those who were there as well as others who heard it on the radio or watched on television.
Okay, so I even though I had a ticket, I decided to go to church. Since, it was Mother's Day there was a longer service with many presentations. So, when I left church it was the bottom of the 5th. II decided that since the game was well in hand, I wasn't going to go for 3 1/2 innings. So I went to the bakery to get a slice of red velvet cake. When I came out of the bakery, Ken Korach said that Dallas had retired the last 18 batters. So the lightbulb went off in my head and I'm like, he must be pitching a non-no.
I decided to listen to the radio as I drove to the ballpark and if the no-no was broken up, I would turn around and go home. I got to the park at the bottom of the 7th and begged my way in for free. The attendant didn't seem to understand the importance what was going on and waived me in. ( I had decided I would turn my ticket in for another game). I didn't realize until after the game that it was a perfecto.
The ballpark was electric, it was like we were all on the field with him. I'm kiinda glad I came in at the end as I don't think my nerves could have taken it. Oh and I am definitely keeping my ticket.
I was shocked that there were A's fan leaving the ballpark at the bottom of the 7th.
This was so much better than game 20 in my opinion.
Any other stories , please?
