...to witness one of the greatest individual offensive achievements in baseball history. shawn green went 6 for 6, with 5 extra base hits, 4 home runs, 19 total bases. he also scored 6 times and drove in 7 in the dodgers' 16-3 romp over the brew crew.
the following year, there were a few cards that addressed the feat, including this 2003 upper deck season highlight/checklist card (one of many cool cards i received from play at the plate the other day)
another cool card is the 2003 upper deck standing o jersey card which printed the dodger portion of the box score on the front
i remember going nuts when adrian beltre hit his two-out homerun in the top of the 9th, giving green another shot at hitting a 4th homerun (green had singled in his 5th at bat). and then, when green actually connected it was just unbelievable. somewhere i have the scorecard that i kept along with the ticket stub and all of that, but these cards are just as helpful in reminding me of what a great performance i witnessed eight years ago today.
here's to you shawn green!
