Hard to believe it was a whole 14 years ago that the country was struck by the events of September 11th. We’ll probably always remember exactly where we were when we heard the news. But even more than remembering where I was, I remember the first public event that brought this country together. Nothing other than a gold old fashioned American baseball game.
I really can’t think of a better way to bring a country together than enjoying America’s pastime. But this wasn’t just any baseball game. If you remember watching this game, you know that it brought upon a feeling that we’ll probably never feel again. It was the first baseball game where winning / losing was completely irrelevant. From President Bush throwing out the first pitch, to the legendary Mike Piazza home run. Throughout all the happenings aroung 9-11, the game at Shea Stadium is one I’ll never forget.
Relive the moment with this video remembering the events of 9-11 and the impact the game of baseball had on bringing the country together. What a beautiful moment.
