Off Day Fun: Witness to Greatness

It's been a bit bitchy and a bit glum around here, so let's break up the gloom with some off day fun. There was a lot of talk this week about Kerry Wood's 20 strikeout game in 1998; for my money, it's the most dominant, incredible thing I've ever seen on a baseball diamond. Baseballs aren't supposed to move like that. Additionally we saw Gavin Floyd come really damn close to a no-hitter against the Twins with just a wicked, filthy curveball of which he had amazing command. So, here's the question: What's the most amazing thing you've ever seen, and I stress "seen" because I want eyewitnesses. Watching on TV counts, but no secondhand accounts, no "I listened on the radio"--none of that. What I'm looking for are eyewitness accounts of baseball greatness.

 

And this guy's 3-HR Opening Day Doesn't count.
