Question First homerun at your first game, who was it?
Mine was Fred McGriff against the Marlins in 1993. My very first game as well! Smile

Darryl Strawberry, don't remember who the Mets played against that day. I was pretty young but it still sticks out in my mind.

I'm not sure what my first was as I was so young, but I remember seeing Tony Gywnn's only career inside the park homerun at the vet! Smile

I can't say I can remember the first homer I witnessed as I was 8 when I attended my first major league game (1982).

However the earliest homer I can vividly remember was in May of '87 when Tim "Rock" Raines hit a grand slam off of Jesse Orosco in the 10th inning. My best friend and I were sitting in the upper deck of old Shea Stadium (can't believe I'm saying that lol) and we couldn't see if the ball left the yard or not. We had to rely on the reactions of the other fans in attendance and the players. Obviously it was a crushing defeat that day so that's probably why I remember it the most.

MiLB game, Chris Owings. Was the second or third batter of the game against the Peoria Chiefs in South Bend. He crushed it.

Hak-Ju Lee made a great diving play and Matt Davidson went 3-4 with a game winning triple. Also met Logan Watkins, great guy.

Davidsons game:

RE: First homerun at your first game, who was it?
I didn't go to my 1st big league game until I went to Turner Field in 07

I've went to maybe 30-40 games since then and a couple AAA games as well

Not sure who hit the 1st one I saw but the 1st I can remember was probably Barry Bonds knocking one out in 07 to right field against my Bravos


My most memorable one was last year when I was at the home opener and Heyward crushed a 3 run homer in his 1st at bat into the back of the bullpen not to far from where we were sitting (The crowd went nuts)
