Bump.
Let's see some more stories.

Always looking for: Ozzie Smith/Stan Musial/Lou Brock/STL Cardinals, NFL-CAR/GB/NE and NASCAR-Jimmie Johnson/Mark Martin

RE: First homerun at your first game, who was it?
In the year of 1997 I saw the Orioles (at home) play against the Mariners. Denny Martinez was pitching for the Mariners when I saw B. J. Surhoff hit a homerun, it was the first one I ever saw. Edgar Martinez hit a home run as well. A-Rod was injured and did not play. Also as a side note B.J. hit for the cycle during that game and Seattle lost.

In 1999 I saw Griffey Jr hit a grand slam for a come from behind victory against the Blue Jays. Been to maybe 12 games total and have seen Edgar Martinez put out at least six dingers.

Here is the stat line from the Atlanta/San Fran game I mentioned earlier and below is a grainy pic I took from our seat in the outfield right as Barry Bonds was about to hit the 1st homer I ever saw in person

Wasn't Denny (Dennis) Martinez the player who accidentally hit Puckett in the face?

RE: First homerun at your first game, who was it?
1984, Chris Speier hit a walk off for the Cardinals. I can remember that everyone was getting excited and jumping to their feet that night on flyballs that they thought were homers. My Dad said "I'm not standing up until it really is a homer". He didn't stand until Speier hit the ball, and he was right.

Interested in EX-MT or better pre-'56 Cardinals, '53 Bowman Color & '74-'78 Topps.

RE: First homerun at your first game, who was it?
I was too young to remember my first, but my most memorable was a Dave Winfield homer at old Tiger Stadium in the early 90's. Hands down the hardest hit ball I have ever seen. It was a solid lined rope crushed into the left field upper deck and the ball was still climbing when it hit the seat or whatever it hit. ( I was in left field lower deck) I've never seen a ball hit with that kind of velocity, it was astounding. The ball never arced at all like most home runs. It hit something so hard it sounded like it broke whatever it was. The entire crowd gasped all at once as the ball came off his bat so hard it seemed like a split second from the crack of the bat to the smash of the impact. And Travis Fryman and Cecil Fielder hit back-to-back homers in the same game - both in almost the exact same spot about 30 feet to my left. Awesome game!
