I'd put it at #7, right after Jackie.

I understand that Carter's HR was a series clincher. That being said, I still think Fisk's HR in '75 was a more memorable moment.

And McGwire's 62nd gets on the list, but not Bonds' 71st?

Also, I have no idea what would replace them, but there are way too many entries from current years of the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry.

I'd only quarrel with #1. Russ Hodge's call and the pretty amazing couple of weeks leading up to that, combined with the fact that the Giants were down 3 runs entering bottom 9, definitely makes it a top 10 moment, maybe even top 5. But, it wasn't in the World Series, and it wasn't a record-setting moment. There have been plenty of comebacks that equal or surpass it, if you look at it from a purely objective standpoint.

It's a pretty good list. You can debate the exact order. I'd say Cal's night was more memorable that the event immediately preceding it, the Buckner error. But I'm an Orioles fan.

I don't remember events 39, 42, 48 and 50, so how memorable were they, really? All of those events took place in 1993 or later and I don't remember a thing about them.

The list is heavily biased towards recent events, obviously. If they went before the tv and radio era they would have to include Merkle's Boner and Snodgrass's Muff.

From more recent times, there really should be something from the 2004 ALCS. As a fan, watching that (not sure which moment, precisely) was among the most memorable experiences I've had.

Oh, and Jeffrey Maier.

The list is the most memorable MLB moments.

It's hard for something to be too memorable if there's no footage of it, right?

As for why Big Mac made the list, but Bonds didn't. While I watched both games, the McGwire home run was special and broke a 47-year old record. Bonds broke a 3-year old record. *yawn*
