Baseball's 30 most memorable moments,

'89...yeah, that's what I meant. I knew it had a "9" in it. Yikes. Ever since I turned 40...

Baseball's 30 most memorable moments,

I agree that the Jackie Robinson achievement is the "most memorable" moment or should be regarded as such. With that in mind, I was trying to remember other moments in baseball that sort of transended that line between the game and the real game (There's more to life than baseball.) They may not be the most memorable, but I'd bet they are for some people. I thought of the recent scene at Wrigley Field when Joe Girardi made the announcement to cancel the game after the death of Darryl Kile. And then there was the earthquake at the 96(?) World Series in Oakland. I'm sure there are others, but none come to mind at the moment.
