  1. I was there! Ricky Henderson almost beat out a grounder in the 9th. Luckily good call by the ump!
    Even many A’s fans were happy.

  2. Raymond Costley

    Was only 10 years old but I was there. I was pissed that McGwire took the day off and Jennings took first!

  3. I was there with my Father and I was the only fan still wanting my A’s to win, not understanding the hugeness of Nolan’s 6th no hitter. I will never forget that game, yelling at the traitors in the stands. Great memory with my Dad as a 17 year old A’s fan. So glad I was there to watch that game.

  4. I was on interns in Dallas. I had plans to go out and see a Rangers game that night, but decided I was too tired and that I’d go another time. The next day Iearned of the no-hitter and decided to skip going to a game, because I’d never be able to top that!
