Five Greatest Baseball Moments In Sun Life Stadium History (Video)
But let's not forget that Miami Gardens' big football park saw some damn good baseball in the last two decades. In just 18 years, the place has hosted more World Series champs than Wrigley Field has in almost a century! Click through for video of the five best baseball moments at the stadium.
5. Anibal Sanchez's No Hitter
Unlike the Mets, who still have yet to record a no-hitter in franchise history, Anibal Sanchez's 2006 no-no against the Diamondbacks was actually the fourth for the Fish. But it was badass for all kinds of other reasons, not the least of which was that he tossed it front of a home town crowd. He also become just the 19th rookie to throw a no-hitter, mowing down 27 D-Backs in his 13th ever big-league start.
4. Ken Griffey Jr.'s 600th Home Run
Only eight men have ever hit more than 600 homers and, in the Steroid Era, only two have more or less avoided the Canseco-scented taint of performance enhancing drugs. One of those dudes is Ken Griffey Jr., and he broke the 600 barrier with the most historically important bomb in Miami Gardens history.
