METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 12, 1977 GAME:Warren Rogan
August 13, 2002
I remember this game well. It marked the end of an era - the Tom Seaver era. Art Howe made the final out in the Astrodome and there was a sense of sadness surrounding the Mets as they knew Seaver had pitched his final game for New York. Just days later, M. Donald Grant sent Seaver packing to the Reds for players such as Doug Flynn, Pat Zachry and Steve Henderson.

I remember watching Art Howe's fly ball settle in Kingman's glove and thinking "They can't trade Seaver,they can't..." The could and they did; two days later, along with Kingman. Art Howe joined the growing line of notable last Met outs (Joe Torre, Davey Johnson) to come back and manage the Mets. What are Kevin Bass and Marty Barrett up to these days?

I just turned 10 years old and remember John Stearns running out to the mound after the last out hugging Seaver saying "Don't go"
