Probably Mike Carp's home run from a couple weeks ago. Jay Buhner called the exact spot he'd hit it and Dave Sims made a great call. And it's a home run against the Angels. Of course it's great ;)

Found the video: http://mlb.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=18595833. You don't really hear Buhner call it before hand, though.



Seeing Smoak hit a home run in the game he came back after his dad passed away was a great moment, too.

Chase Utley's inside-the-park homerun against San Francisco.

I had never seen one in person before, and Chase made my first time special (yes, I'm comparing Chase Utley to sex). No matter what, an inside-the-park homerun is going to be exciting, but insert Chase (again with the innuendo) into any play and it becomes twice as intense.

Unlike most of the other inside-the-parkers I had ever seen on TV, this one actually ended with a close play at the plate. It was the perfect ending to the most exciting play in baseball. A head-first slide to avoid a wide throw and tag. The collective breath-holding between the time Utley left his feet and the home plate umpire waved his arms.

As a bonus, during that game, I sat in front of a hipster with a giant beard and a sign calling out Brian Wilson.

I might be a genius, because I'm not a Tigers fan in the least, but am pretty sure I know exactly what you are talking about.

A Grand Slam by Brett Lawrie in his 5th career game. It gave the Jays the lead and ended up being the game-winning run(s).

http://mlb.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=17884073


Second favorite, only slightly behind the above, was another Lawrie home run. In the 11th inning, he hit a solo shot to break a 0-0 tie and walk-off vs. the Red Sox.
