You may not be able to remember the first person you ever dated, you may struggle to remember your mother's birthday and sometimes you're real fuzzy on what your social security number is, but you always remember baseball's biggest moments: Carlton Fisk's home run, Ozzie Smith making folks "go crazy,"

You may not be able to remember the first person you ever dated, you may struggle to remember your mother's birthday and sometimes you're real fuzzy on what your social security number is, but you always remember baseball's biggest moments: Carlton Fisk's home run, Ozzie Smith making folks "go crazy," Griffey rounding third and heading for home to give the Mariners the 1995 ALDS victory over the Yankees.

On Wednesday, MLB.com is celebrating these amazing singular half-innings, one after another, all day long. It's like the greatest baseball mixtape ever made.

But we also want to know: Can you remember the moment before the moment? Can you gather the context clues and figure out which amazing play you're about to hear, based on the broadcast audio that immediately preceded it?

That is your task. Good luck.
