METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 9, 1972 GAME:Kenny
November 4, 2002
I have a video of about 4 innings of this game. Players in the line-up that day included Mays, Fregosi, Beachamp (replaced at 1B by Kranepool), Dyer, Martinez, Garrett, Harrelson, Milner. Starting OF of Staub, Agee, and Jones were all injured. In Dodgers line-up was Buckner, Lacy, Parker, Wills, Lefebre, Sims, Davis, and Frank Robinson! Pretty uneventful game..but there was a great play at the plate, where Seaver attempted a suicide squeeze off Osteen with Dyer on third after Dyer had doubled off the wall in the gap in right. He was called out after the replay clearly showed safe, and Berra and Dyer argued the call. Fregosi looked terrible at plate.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
