Ssal0808 Posted November 16, 2010 Share Posted November 16, 2010 I just wanted to start a post for people to share their favorite moments of the season, catching a home run, meeting a player, going to your first game, etc. Here are a few of mine.Spring TrainingThe woman and I went down to Orlando and Space Coast to watch the Braves and Nats play and home and away series. Champion’s Stadium is beautiful. We were walking around the home side of the stadium and met a few players. Tommy Hanson was particularly nice. He didn’t mind talking baseball with a fan and seemed genuinely appreciative when I told him he should have won Rookie of the Year.The next day we drove to Space Coast, Fl, where the Nats call home. In a tradition that carries on to the regular season, there were more Braves fans there than Nats fans. Scott Procter was warming up. I asked for his autograph, along with a few other fans. He said he would sign autographs on if we signed the bill of his hat. It was a good gesture and we all signed his hat, while he signed our assortment of memorabilia. I instantly became a fan of his.Regular SeasonGoing to Kawakami’s only (and last thankfully) win against the Tigers. The fun part was the moment they had for Chipper after he hit his three run homer, when the team let him run on the field by himself.Bobby’s Last Two Games. These were great, especially winning on Sunday to get to the playoffs. Watching all the former Braves players walk to the field for the ceremony on Saturday was very memorable for me. The ovation that received well deserved. I am even less of a fan of Bud Selig for not attending Bobby’s farewell, but I know he busy picking out the worst of the umpires for the post season.
