METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 6, 1974 GAME:Tony McClean
August 11, 2015
This was the very first Mets game at Shea Stadium that I attended. My uncle and me took the subway to the game. I bought a batting helmet, yearbook, and I was in seventh heaven. Even though it was a very hot day (about 85 degrees), I proudly wore my batting helmet during the whole game. It's still one of my most favorite memories as a baseball fan even though the Mets lost the game. My uncle passed away a few years later and remembering this day makes me remember him as well. He was a longtime Brooklyn Dodger fan who followed the Mets when they came to town. Whenever I get off the No. 7 train and see the ballpark in the distance, I always remember this day and my uncle. Thanks for helping me share this great memory.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
