I’ve gone to a lot of Major League Baseball games in my life. Probably 50 or more.
The most memorable at-bat that I’ve ever witnessed in person was Alex Cora’s 18-pitch affair against the Cubs in May 2004. On Matt Clement’s 18th delivery, Cora launched a home run into the Cubs’ bullpen at Dodger Stadium.
