METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 16, 1971 GAME:Joel
August 12, 2003
I went to this game with my friend David from Midwood High School as a pre graduation day treat (we had morning schedules our senior year so we got out of school before noon time). Anyway the Mets Mike Jorgenson hits two home runs off of LA pitcher Bill Singer. I also remember that future Mets manager Bobby Valentine was playing 3rd base that day for the Dodgers and there were a lot of his fans and friends from Connecticut who were cheering him on that afternoon.

One minor correction to Joel's post from August of 2003: Mike Jorgensen did hit two homers in this game, but only one came off Bill Singer. His second home run came in the bottom of the eighth off reliever Jose Pena.
Jerry Koosman made a rare relief appearance in this game, pitching 1.1 innings in relief of Charlie Williams.

My dad took me to my first game. We sat in RF - box seats. Took the subway from Manhattan. Seem to remember I skipped school that day! Jorgensen hit two - both deep drives to rf. Thought I remembered a Dodger (Mota or Wills) stealing home -or caught stealing home. Box score doesn't show it though.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
