In 1989 I was seated front row in left field at Riverfront Stadium, Cincinnati when Eric Davis of the Reds hit for the cycle. Have you ever witnessed a great moment in baseball history being made live at a stadium?

Sammy Sosa walk-off homer and Starlin Castro's first grand slam. 😎

The fastest pitch ever thrown. By Aroldis Chapman at a Padres vs. Reds game

I haven't, but my uncle witnessed Nolan Ryan beating up Robin Ventura. So that's pretty cool

Oh and I witnessed Adrian Beltre hit for the cycle a few years ago. I wouldn't call it historic. It was impressive but I don't really think of that as being a historic moment in baseball

I watched Josh Hamilton hit four home runs in one game live on TV. I believe it was a playoff game too, although I can't remember for sure. That was pretty cool cause he basically carried the team to victory that day all on his own

No, at least not that I can remember, but I'm really not a sports fan.

I had my own personal baseball moment, though. I used to go to Crosley Field in Cincinnati to watch Reds games with my dad and my brother. We went to one of the World Series games with the Yankees in 1961. I had to use the restroom somewhere during the game, and while I was finding my way to it, the entire Yankees team streamed out from wherever they had been secreted. They jogged RIGHT BY ME, within easy touching distance. Does that even happen any more? Aren't they held in more private areas, or at least near where only the big-bucks patrons can get close to them?

At any rate, it was a pretty big thrill for a 15-year-old, even if it wasn't the home team. (The home team lost, anyway.)

I watched the longest field goal on record kicked at Mile High in Denver.

Cincinnati has the honor of being the first major league baseball city, established in 1869, The Cincinnati Red Stockings. Since 1869 only three Cincinnati Reds players have ever hit for the cycle, Eric Davis being the last 1989. So you can see the rarity of that event.

Sorry, I said three players, should've said nine players including Eric Davis.
