METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 17, 1970 GAME:buddy3
October 13, 2008
This was a great day for Bud Harrelson. He hit a home run in the first inning to give the Mets a 1-0 lead. The homer was his first one that ever went out of the park (he had an inside-the- parker a few years earlier) and the only one of his six as a Met that he ever hit at Shea Stadium.
Buddy didn't stop there. In the third, he hit a triple that scored Tommie Agee, then scored himself when Joe Foy doubled. The Mets got three runs in the inning.
Tom Seaver, pretty much, took care of the rest. He pitched a shutout, scattering eight hits, but the day really belonged to Buddy. He provided the offensive charge with some slugging, which didn't come from him too often.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
