Response to CitizenLeft (Reply #33)

36. I saw the Browns and the Indians a number of times in the old Stadium...

I remember my very first game. My mom took my brother and me to a game between the Yankees and the Indians.

I remember it so well because Mickey Mantle hit a home run. I think this was his last season. We waited for two hours to get an autograph from Mickey Mantle and he just blew right by us as if we weren't there.

Over the years I saw many great things. I was at the game where the ball hit Conseco in the head and bounced over the fence for a Home Run. When they moved to Jacobs Field, we went in on Season Tickets and saw about thirty games including the one where Sandy Alomar hit a home run to beat the Yankees.

I went out in style as the Judge I was doing his financial reports, Peter Sikora, invited us to sit up in the Club Seats. It was a struggle for me since I am now having health troubles.

We went to the last Monday Night game which was played after Model announced he was moving the team. It was ugly, real ugly.

And I went to I think 8-9 World Series of Rocks at the Old Stadium. Wonderful memories.

Love this area. I lived in Columbus and Salem Oregon for a bit and I really decided that Cleveland is the place to be...
