My very first Mets game!!!!
I don't exactly remember the details of the game. But I was just in awe of the green grass the sights and sounds it was incredible! The other thing I remember is that we got these tickets through some Dairylea promotion does anybody remember this promotion? You had to send in coupons I believe they had to equal 20 points and that was good for one ticket, I member packing the envelope and sending these coupons in and the tickets arriving a few weeks later. The whole thing brings back great memories.

Its funny, this was my very first Mets game as well. We got there right after the game started and I remember Matlack pitching and he was already in trouble. The biggest thing I remember about the game is Nate Colbert hitting a 9th-inning home run into the parking lot.
I will never forget my first sight of the field when I walked up the ramp, and saw that big giant scoreboard for the first time. It was a magical night and one I will never forget. Only 7 years old at the time, but remember like it was yesterday.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
