METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 5, 1971 GAME:Ed K
September 4, 2002
First road game I ever saw the Mets play. My folks had helped me move into my freshman dorm at Penn and we had some free time, so we went over to the Vet. The only time I ever saw Nolan pitch in person and he lost. The Phils gave out Phillies rulers and book covers for back to school day and my sisters hung on to the rulers (which included Mike Schmidt's picture on it) for years.
I saw a bunch of Met games at the Vet over the next four years because they were always scheduled for a trip to Philly in April before the spring semester was over and in September after the fall semester had started. Of course, I most remember 1973. I went to a Phils-Pirates game that September to root against the Pirates.

Nolan Ryan walked five, hit a batter and gave up three hits in just two innings (plus three batters in the third) as the Mets got creamed by the Phils.
Don Hahn had a fifth inning inside-the-park homer for the Mets off Woody Fryman. It was Hahn's first career home run.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
