The famous 1998 Brant Brown call. The Chicago Cubs were beating the Milwaukee Brewers 7-0 entering the seventh inning before Milwaukee cut the Cubs' lead to 7-5. With the score still 7-5 going into the bottom of the ninth inning, Milwaukee loaded the bases. Cubs pitcher Rod Beck threw his next pitch and the Brewers' hitter hit a fly ball to left that Cubs' left fielder Brant Brown would drop, costing the Cubs the game. Here's how color analyst Ron Santo reacted on the radio broadcast during the play...hahaha

1:00 - Former Chicago Cub Choi Hee Seop beats out a throw to 1st, loading the bases for... 3:44 - A Grand Slam to make it 11-0 in the 8th inning. I also start howling like an unholy offspring of Ron Santo and Shaggy from Scooby Doo. In my defense this was my first time experiencing baseball at such a high pitch, first Tigers game, and they just hit a grand slam to make it 11-0 - the 3rd of 3 home runs in the game. On the other hand - I still sound like Ron Santo and Shaggy's love child. That pretty much sealed my commitment as a Tigers fan and avid goofy howler.
