METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 26, 1973 GAME:Tom V
August 21, 2002
I went to this game and because of my father's connections with a charity organization, I got to sit on the bench in the dugout with the team before the game. I was 15 at the time and remember being intimidated and excited. I looked to my left and sitting next to us was Yogi Berra (who ignored me and my brother, he seemed pretty serious). I don't remember anything about the game, but I most remember Rusty Staub talking to us and to another guest who was a former player. Rusty was very friendly and made a comment about the other guest having had written a book and Rusty commenting that he had written a cookbook while in Montreal. I got an autographed team ball, which I still have, with the signatures of Yogi, Seaver, Koosman, Willie Mays, etc.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
