METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 31, 1972 GAME:David Quinn
September 26, 2013
My dad usually took me to a Met Game every year for my birthday. This year it landed exactly on my 13th birthday. My dad got us Press Box seats from some unknown connection and I was having the time of my life. Unfortunately my Mom was pregnant with my younger sister. We all thought she would give birth later in August but she started experiencing early labor pains that night at home. My Dad called her and felt we needed to leave before the game was over. I would have none of this as the game was tied and I was having a great time. When Duffy Dyer hit the game winning homer in the eighth, I felt justified in staying for the final out. Fortunately my mom held out and gave birth the next day. Boy was happy and damn lucky, no way my dad was staying for extra innings!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
