METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 19, 1976 GAME:Billy E.
July 16, 2008
I was at this game. I was 11 years old at the time and was on a bus trip courtesy of Martz Trailways from Wilkes-Barre PA. Anyway, what I remember is it being a warm Sunday, and Dave Kingman launching 2HRS, both to leftfield and Skip Lockwood coming in and just blowing hitters away, something like 7K's in 3 innings! Ever see a short relief specialist do that now? Lockwood to me is one of the most underrated Met relievers of all time, certainly better than those two clowns Benitez or Franco or others too numerous to mention.

I remember this game very well. I was 13 and Willie Stargell was my favorite visiting player so me and my father went to see this game. The Mets were having a pretty good year and the Pirates always drew a good crowd, this was before the nightmare of 77. We had great seats behind home and it couldn't have been any better, Stargell homered and the Mets made a great comeback powered by my favorite Met at the time Dave Kingman's 2 bombs. As the previous fan posted, Lockwood was awesome that day too and it was a great win and a great day to be 13 and a Mets fan.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
