February 4, 2004
The Mets are 31-12 and have the best record in baseball after this win. But during the game with the Mets up 4-1 Rusty Staub is hit in the hand by a George Stone pitch. Rusty's hand is broken, and he will miss three months of the season.
After Staub's injury the Mets go 52-61 the rest of the way and finish the year 13.5 games out of first place.

I'm pretty sure that this was the first Met game I ever went to. At least it is the first one I can remember. I was 8 years old at the time. I distinctly remember the Mets beating the Braves and Tom Seaver hitting a ground double. I remember him hitting it down one of the foul lines but I can't remember which one. I don't remember Rusty Staub breaking his hand though.

Johnrd, yes...Seaver grounded a double just inside the first base bag in the fourth inning.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
