METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 27, 1972 GAME:Happy Recap
August 25, 2000
This was the second game I ever attended at Shea, and the first time I ever saw the Mets win in person. This day's game would end up being the only bright spot in Jim Fregosi's career with the Mets. He hit a three-run homer to break a 4-4 tie and win the game. I also remember being disappointed that Roberto Clemente didn't play that day. As it turned out, he would die in the coming off-season, so I never got to see him play in person. One final memory from that day: My grandfather's respect for Willie Stargell as an opponent. During the pre-game announcement of Stargell's name, he shouted "That's the guy you oughta boo!"

Not only did Fregosi hit a three run homer to give the Mets a 7-4 lead in the bottom of the seventh, but he earlier had driven in two runs with a first inning single, giving him five RBIs on the night (he only had 32 RBIs all season). I'd have to think this was Fregosi's best game as a Met.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
