METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 11, 1972 GAME:Mook
April 26, 2010
This was the game.. This was when I really knew that the 1972 season was all over, and it wasn't even rock bottom. After looking invincible in May and early June, the Mets were so depleted that the RF tandem in this game was the immortal Ted Martinez and then the great Duffy Dyer. Now I liked Duffy as a player and a catcher, but it was painful watching him lumber around the outfield on this stifling humid July night. I remember he made an error going after a ball essentially tripping over his own feet. I recall that this night was so miserable, I had actually had pain watching the Mets bumble!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
