9. I was at the game for one of these: Ellis Burton in 1963

Plus it was a crucial battle with the Houston Colt 45's for sole possession of 9th place in the National League (OK, just made up the last part, but probably not far from the truth)
I'd noticed Hafner doing that the other day and thought about being at Wrigley with my friend and my mom that day in 1963. It really was a pretty exciting thing to see.
Somehow, I actually still remember some details of that 9th inning, including that the Cubs were down by 4; got one run in, and then had no one on base with two outs when Don Landrum (pretty sure I'm remembering that correctly) beat out a bunt. Also, my aging memory tells me that the homer was on a 3-2 pitch.
