Here’s a new little session that we’re going to start playing around with. If you go to baseballreference.com, you can go to any box score, of any game on record. I’ve been looking for a site like this for a long, long time. Goodbye Retro-sheet.
Today, I begin to try and lookup every game that Adam Dunn homered in, in which I was present. It seems like way more than any other player. So here goes:
April 27, 2002-First time I saw Dunn play live. George and I’s first trip to Riverfront
June 7, 2003– Out of the park, sailed over the bullpen to right field
June 4, 2004-First one I saw after I moved to Cincinnati, by myself
June 16, 2004– He came into his own this series against the Rangers
June 30, 2004– Off Tom Glavine. I saw Corey Lidle pitch, caught a foul ball
April 4, 2005– Two on opening day. First off Pedro, then off Looper to tie it!!!
June 16, 2005– Another one for George. From the Diamond Seats. The most incredible homerun I’ve ever seen. Dead center, out of the park.
April 2, 2007– Opening Day he goes deep twice. Justin and I are there to see the two mammoths!
I count that I’ve seen him hit 22 bombs in person, but I’m sure I’m missing a few. Just another reason the dude is my favorite player. He needs to retire as a Red. Plus, he hogs, or he used to anyways.
