METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 26, 1976 GAME:Ken Schlapp
January 10, 2004
This was a very special day at the beginning of my Met fanatasism. I was so enthralled with the Mets at the age of 7 that my whole family forgot about me watching this game in my aunt's basement, that they left for my cousin's wedding without me and I didn't even realize it. The only thing I can remember from the wedding is that John Milner hit a grand slam and that the Mets won 10-2. I've suffered from Met Fan Disease ever since and hold a special place for The Hammer in my memories.

This was a Saturday afternoon game at Wrigley, the middle game of a 3-game series that the Mets swept.
After falling behind, 1-0 on a Rick Monday leadoff home run in the first, the Mets scored 6 in the top of the third inning. Felix Millan singled to tie the game and then Milner hit his grand slam to make it 5-1. Kingman followed with a home run (his 25th) and it was 6-1. Kranepool drove in two more with a bases loaded single in the fifth, and the other Mets runs scored on a triple by Del Unser and a homer by Mike Phillips, one of only 11 homers in his career.
Jerry Koosman allowed just two more hits after Monday's homer and Bob Apodaca came in to get the last seven outs.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
