My first MLB game

My first MLB game was the Yankees vs the Blue Jays.I'v been to som Ottawa Rapids games + and there old baseball team.I'v been in Toronto 2 times but the Jays have lost 2 times and won 1 time. But ther is 1 thing that like in Ottawa you bearlie get annie CAN-AM baseball on tv.And My first MLB game the Toronto won 4-1.


  1. I went to my first MLB game in 2001, when I was fifteen. It was the Milwaukee Brewers against the Houston Astros. I don't remember the score but my team, the Brewers, lost. I didn't mind. I don't live in the US or Canada so I don't get to go to many MLB games. I was happy just to see my team for the first time.

    Keep up the good work you are doing here, Eric! I like what you write, so I'm putting your blog on my RSS feed. :-)

  2. I'm too old to remember my first game but I went to a lot of Tigers games at the late, great Tiger Stadium.

    I do remember an utterly fantastic game in September of 1987, between the Jays and the Tigers, who were tied for the division lead. It was back and forth and a guy by the name of Dave Berkman had the greatest at-bat I've evenrseen, fouling off about 20 pithes to hit a home run to left-center to win it. The Tigers eventually won the division but lost the ALCS to the Twins who won the Series that year. I loved the rivalry with the Jays during those years, when both teams were very good.

    Keep up the good work.

  3. Hi Eric. Great job with the blog!

    I went to my first Yankees game at the NEW Yankee Stadium last week with my 9 year old son. His younger brother is the same age as you, but he went to an amusement park instead.

    When you and your dad come to NY, we'll have to go to a game!

  4. I grew up on Boston, so my first games were all 70s and 80s Red Sox games. I probably watched them play the Blue Jays back when Dave Steib, Jimmy Key, Willlie Upshaw, Jesse Barfield, and crazy karate-chopping George Bell were on that early 80s squad.

    You'll always remember, Eric, that you saw the Yankees lose at your first MLB game. That's an important memory! (;

  5. I don't remember what my first game was, but it had to be a Cardinals game, probably Cards-Cubs in Chicago, since we were Redbirds fans living in "enemy territory." I was hoping to go to Wrigley again when I visit Chicago next month, but the Cubs won't be in town.

    Great start to the blog, Eric. Keep it up!

  6. I wish I would have recorded the first game I attended! But I did record the first one my daughter went to...the Padres lost to the Cubs...or did they win? I'll have to go back and look it up:-)

    Keep writing, Eric.

  7. Eric,

    I'm going to visit relatives in Dundas soon, and I was hoping to see a Blue Jays game while I'm there. I've never been to the Rogers Centre, so I'd like to hear what you think of the stadium.

    Are the seats good for watching the game? How is the food? Was the game you went to one where the roof was open? Anything you can tell me about the stadium would be great.

    Keep up the great work.

  8. I was 44 or maybe 45 when I saw my first major-league game. I wonder if that's some sort of record? Probably is around here, at least.

  9. Yah the roof was open the food was great to and where I was siting you hade a great view of the field and the CN tour, but the bad thing is there was some drunk Yankees fan siting next to us yelling at Petite.
    The score was 4-1 Toronto and we got to see two pitchers that ar playing for the same team now Andy Petite and A.J. Burnett enthen Ryan came in to close it out now runs alowed but now I've been to 3 MLB games but they where all Jays games and the only one they won was the Yankees game and the Jays lost to Rays and the Indians and when the Ottawa Links and the Ottawa Rapids were playing I went to old Link stadium to see the Can-Am league and one game Ottawa beat New Jersey 18-7.
