Commentary: Amazing memories of baseball old and new


Most baseball fans seem to recall with little effort their first big-league game with their father.

My first game took place Aug. 6, 1994, at the Metrodome. The Twins were hosting the New York Yankees in the first game of a two-game set. We were sitting in right field, six rows back.

Yankees right fielder Paul O'Neill hit a rocket to center off Twins starter Pat Mahomes in the top of the first inning that landed in the upper deck, giving the Bombers a 2-0 lead.
