    Re: Bonds at Yankee Stadium

    Yeah I dont really recall many blasts getting that high in the upper deck, very impressive

    Ricky Ledee definitely did in the 90s and I also remember Ruben Sierra hitting a massive shot almost that high once

    Re: Bonds at Yankee Stadium

    Missed it.

    But I was there the next day when Bonds came up down 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs and a runner on. They intentionally walked him to put the tying run on base and then got a groundout to end the game.

    Some people were booing the walk. Not me. I say take the win and run.

    Just looked up the box score. He went 0 for 0, a HBP (Clemons) and 4 walks (3 intentional)

    Yep. Snapped off a sequence of thoroughly mediocre pictures from the stands with a 35mm film camera (remember those?). Didn't actually see where it landed until I saw the replay but I vividly recall the gasp and subsequent "woah" made by the crowd. It was a moonshot.

    I don't know if I ever saw Bobby Bonds hit a HR at Yankee Stadium. The year he spent with the Yankees, they played at Shea.

    I was there as well, seated in the upper deck along the third base line. Still remember my jaw dropping the instant he made contact, and following the flight of the ball as if it were a Cape Canaveral rocket launch. It was legendary.

    I remember watching him strike out a lot with a runner in scoring position.

    That was the forum party, so quite a few of us were there. Jim F was there, and I think Brian also.

    That thing sparked the debate about whether a slugger should be pitched around in the 1st inning. Some would say, "Well, that guy's not exactly Barry Bonds, so no need to". As it turned out, it WAS Barry Bonds ... and people STILL didn't want to see the IBB. That philosophy must count for more than the end results.

    Ted Lilly, a young southpaw, served up a 3-run blast that ping-ponged into the upper deck in all of about 1/2 second.

    We lost the game in the 10th. Mo struck up Bonds to end the 9th w/bases empty. The Giants scored runs off Mo in the 10th, and they closed us out. Only proves that Bonds should've been IBB'd in the 1st inning, since we could've won that game (w/Mo whiffing Bonds w/bases empty, going 1-2-3).

    Not quite right. For one thing, the game went the regulation nine, not ten, and Mo pitched only one inning.

    Nick Johnson had tied the game in the second with a three-run homer of his own, and it remained tied 3-3 until the ninth. Mo got the first out on a lineout, but he then (of all things) walked Rich Aurilia ahead of Bonds. He did, indeed, then strike out Bonds for the second out, but Jeff Kent reached on a bloop single, putting runners on the corners with two outs, and the eventual winning run scored when Benito Santiago reached on an error by Soriano (Alfonso, that is). Mo then struck out Richie Sanders to end the inning. In the bottom of the frame, Robb Nenn retired the heart of the Yankee order, Giambi, Williams and Posada, on two grounders to first and a fly ball to left.

    You don't get none with Nenn, as Gringaloca observed in the Game Thread. And Mo never was quite as sharp in tie games.
