Default Best games you ever saw

What are your favorite best games you have ever seen, excluding pitching performances?

My biggest memories is the game of the 1977 World Series when Reggie hit 3 HR's in one game. My second biggest was the 1989 All Star game when Bo Jackson led off with a HR and continued with other offensive/defensive amazement.

I was really young and not there, nor saw it on TV, but the game in which Hank Aaron hit his 715th - the electricity must have been over the top!

And for those a little older, I would imagine Ted Williams' final game when he hit his final HR would have been especially memorable.

What other games in the last few decades have been most memorable for you?

Braves vs. Twins 1991 World Series, game 7, Smoltz vs. Jack Morris...The game was 0-0 going into the tenth inning....There should not have been a loser in this series....

I remember that game well!
Talk about a pitching dual.

I guess my favorite, being a CDN and being close to Toronto, would be the Jays winning their first World Series.

Joe Carter hitting that ball from the Wild Thing was extra special.

If we are going with all sports. I'll go with the Michigan - Notre Dame football game under the lights in 2011. Incredible finish with Robinson throwing a touch down to Roundtree with 2 seconds left instead of going for the tie with a field goal. It was the third touchdown in the last couple minutes of the game with the lead changing hands after each score.
The best part was it was my son's first experience watching a game at the Big House. The final touchdown was scored in the end zone right in front of us. Nobody left the stadium for about an hour after the game finished.

In no particular order..... and all on TV not in person..... Ripken equalling Gehrigs record and the game after when he broke it, Big Mac and his 70th HR, Gibsons insane HR in the World Series (that was like a made for TV movie there!), and also way back when (maybe 1966 or 67??) saw Mantle go 5 for 5 against I think the Washington Senators .

This is one of mine ... A random early season game. April 16, 2000. I went to a Texas v. Cleveland game to check out Jacobs Field.
Pitchers duel between Loaiza and Finley. Finley was the first pitcher to strike out four in an inning more than once ... it was his third time in two years (a couple of guys have done it twice since then).
Manny and Thome went back-to-back with one out in the bottom of the ninth off Wetteland to win it 2-1. I still have the scorecard.

As for TV games, I remember watching Aaron's 715th and thinking how cool it was that a baseball achievement was the country's top story.
Nothing tops the 1986 postseason for me ... NLCS game 6 was the most prolonged intensity I've ever seen in a game, without question.

As a former college basketball player, those games are what I remember most.

Duke Michigan

of course the Gophers Kentucky (since vacated) I sat in the third row. Amazing experience.

Michigan Seton Hall

and of course, NC State beating Houston. I loved Houston. I was really devastated by that loss. I was 12 and couldn't sleep for a couple nights after.

July 17, 1987. Milwaukee County Stadium. I saw the Brewers destroy the California Angels 12-2, pounding out 20 hits.

The big bat that day belonged to the #9 hitter, shortstop Dale Sveum (he was playing second this day). Three home runs, and 6 RBI in total. And he missed hitting four home runs by about 5 feet. His third at bat, he struck out, not before sending a screaming line drive that just missed curling inside the right field foul pole.
