METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 11, 1972 GAME:Hank M
December 14, 2004
I went to this game with my father and two sisters. We sat in the upper deck behind the Mets' dugout. It was the first game of a day- night doubleheader against the Dodgers. The Mets won, 2-1, as Tom Seaver got his 100th career victory and Ed Kranepool hit a home run. There was also a rumor going around Shea Stadium that the Mets had just acquired Willie Mays, which turned out to be true.
Dad bought souvenirs for all three of us. He got a Mets' Yearbook for me and, for my sisters, a pen and pencil set and a Mr. Met rag doll. The total cost of all of these items was $4.25!
We all went home happy that day with our souvenirs and memories of a Mets win on a sunny Thursday afternoon at Shea.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
