METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 15, 1976 GAME:Joe Rosenthal
April 10, 2003
This was the third Mets game I attended in 1976. July 15, 1976 was two days before my seventh birthday, but I remember parts of the game vividly. I sat behind the Astros dugout with my parents in one of the first ten rows. Kingman's home run was monstrous. I remember it went out near the light brown brick wall that used to be in left. There was talk at the time that Kingman might hit 60, but then he got hurt. Koosman was magic that night on his way to a 20+ win season. It was a beautiful night all the way around. I remember Bob Watson hit a towering popup for the Astros that I was sure was going to hit a plane that was flying overhead at the same time.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
