METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 30, 1969 GAME:Dave Shaw
March 19, 2003
My dad took packed me and about 7 friends into the family station wagon to see this classic game. McCovey homered early off Seaver and Mets trailed 3-1 heading to bottom/7th inning. Swoboda knocked in one run, Rod Gaspar hit his only major league homer and Duffy Dyer delivered a pinch-hit RBI single in the bottom/8th to decide it. It was victory #3 in important 11-game winning streak.

This was a memorial day ballgame. McCovey drills a Seaver fastball almost over the scoreboard. The ball hit somewhere near the Mets posted lineup. Agee looked up and waved at it, never moved a muscle. Why bother? Willie Mac received 45 free passes that year, at the time a major league record. Barry gets that much in a 4 game series!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
