Estes in Dodger Blue

Even though I live in Southern California (and as a lifelong Giants fan that is tough at times), I was passing through San Francisco in 1997 and was able to stop and catch a game.
I saw Sean Estes (and Rod Beck) pitch a one-hitter against the Rockies on July 4. This was back when the Rockies carried BIG sticks.
I have witnessed a lot of baseball with many memorable pitching performances. But I have never been more impressed than I was that day. Estes' curveball was magnificent. I don't think the Rockie hit a ball hard all day - not even a foul ball.
He had his ups and downs no doubt, but this was the best of times for Sean Estes.

Great comment, Kevin. Unfortunately, my big memory of Estes was that fateful nite at the end of the 2001 season when he got bombed early in the 10-9 loss to the Dodgers
