    I always look forward to such dates and times and then miss them when they happen. June 7, 1989 was one such date.

    I remember that day. The local news (I lived in Southern California at the time) had a story about a baby born at 1:23:45 AM on that date. So that was 01:23:45 6/7/89

    Just realized, that baby is now a young adult! Time flies!

    lol

    For the record, I was quite aware of this 12:12:12.12 on 12/12/12 well in advance. And, for the record, I too was still in Pacific Standard Time when it came and passed, having just departed from the San Francisco airport on a return flight to NYC. Normally, when I fly to another time zone, I change my wristwatch immediately upon take-off. This time, however, I waited twenty minutes until the time came and went, at which time I consciously switched to 3:13pm EST.

    Put it in the books.

    At the time this photo was taken it was just 3:33:33 until the official release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"...

    This is home now - Citi Field, capacity 41,800 - and every seat in this ballpark seemingly filled, some standees as well, anticipating a piece of history as delivered by Mike Pelfrey, the 25-year-old from Wichita, Kansas. Into a windup, his first pitch in the history of Citi Field, a fastball for a called strike to Jody Gerut. Gerut off to a .214 start with no homers and one RBI. - Howie Rose calls the very first pitch thrown at Citi Field, April 13, 2009
