America’s Game has conjured some awesome memories over the years, and on this page we’ll list some of our favorites. It’s no wonder people go to great lengths to buy baseball tickets when great sporting moments like these happen.
1960: This was the year Pittsburgh’s Bill Mazeroski changed MLB history. Mazeroski led off the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7 with a tremendous home run. The game had been a 9-9 tie and Mazeroski’s strike won the World Series for the Pirates against the New York Yankees. Pirates tickets and Yankees tickets are among the best-selling MLB baseball tickets to this day, and this fantastic game surely didn’t hurt.
2007: Much more recently, this year’s fabulous Red Sox showed the world what they could do when Manny Ramirez, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell and Jason Varitek whaled four consecutive home runs at Fenway. The opponents were again the New York Yankees, who went down 7-6 in Boston. And of course Red Sox tickets remain baseball’s biggestsellers.
2001: The San Francisco Giants’ Barry Bonds hits 71 home runs that season – breaking Mark McGwire’s single season home run record – and going on to finish that season with 73 home runs in total. Today’s fans, when buying Giants tickets, must be surely hoping to witness another such achievement.
1954: This was the year of the famous “Catch”. Willie Mays made his score in centerfield when he caught a drive over his shoulder in Game 1 of the World Series against Cleveland. The New York Giants won the Series that year, and Mays’ excellent play will never be forgotten, by people buying Cleveland Indians tickets, or pretty much anyone else!
2007: Again, more recent, and worth noting. Not strictly a baseball score, April 15 was the date Jackie Robinson broke the Major League Baseball color barrier 60 years earlier. All of the sport stopped to celebrate this milestone in 2007, as well they should do. Actually more than just a baseball score, if I may say. Baseball scores and memorable strikes are discussed across the land wherever MLB baseball fans get together, and we will try to update this page with more memories as time passes.
