Countdown to Opening Day: 10 till ’10

There are five weeks (six Mondays) until Opening Day on April 5 at Nationals Park. The first Spring Training game is this Thursday, a split-squad scrimmage against the Marlins and Astros. We are counting down the final few weeks of the offseason highlighting 10 memorable moments, jaw-dropping catches and walk-off wins. You have seen them before but you’ll want to see them again.

 

Last week we highlighted Willie Harris hitting a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 12th inning against the Blue Jays the night after Dunn hit a walk-off single.

 

This week we highlight Adam Dunn once again. On a day known for fireworks and freedom–that would be the Fourth of July–Dunn created his own fireworks when he blasted his 300th career home run to left field. He finished 2009 with 38 home runs, ending his five year streak of hitting at least 40 home runs. He currently sits in17th place among active players with 316 home runs, one behind David Ortiz.

Thanks for updates. Alas! I missed the event where Willie Harris hitting a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 12th inning against the Blue Jays the night after Dunn hit a walk-off single. But good thing you mentioned it here. Well, while waiting for the Opening Day on April 5 at Nationals Park maybe you want to see first the Presidential Reunion skit that Funnyordie created. But for now, I’m really into seeing the memorable moments in this coming season and I really hope there will be jaw-dropping catches and walk-off wins!
