I also attended: 1998 ALCS game 2 (the Knoblauch bonehead play), the game against the Orioles when Benitez drilled Martinez and started the bench-clearing brawl, A-Rod's 500th, Jeter's most hits in old YS, Jeter's most hits all-time by a Yankee, A-Rod's walkoff vs Cleveland in April 2007 when the Yankees came back from down 6-2 with 2 outs and no one on in the btm of the 9th.
