METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 18, 1970 GAME:
April 4, 2002
This is the first baseball game I ever attended. I was 9 1/2 years old, and had first become aware of baseball -- and first become a Met fan --during the 1969 World Series, nine months before.
My family and I lived in New York City but spent the summer of 1970 in Santa Ana, CA. I attended this game at Dodger Stadium with a man named Chuck. At the time Chuck was working with my Dad for Nawal, a conglomerate of NBC and Walt Disney. Nawal was producing the first "Disney on Parade", and my dad was the company manager.
This game involved a classic Mets come-from-behind win. Their bats were dormant most of the game, but they rallied from 3-1 deficit for 1 4-3 win. I was one of the only fans at the quiet Dodger stadium cheering during the comeback.

I was there,too.I had to make up my mind who to root for because I liked both teams. In the 5th, I think it was, the Mets pulled a classic "you take it, no you take it" play where three players let an easy pop fall in. Classic Mets except this was the new Mets and they came back.
