November 11, 2011
This was the first baseball game I took my 8-year-old son to see. It was his birthday and he wanted to see the Mets play. If I remember the game right, there were some old timers who actually played for a little bit, I think Mickey Mantle and a few others. But, our BIG surprise at this event was that we were sitting in the same section as Roy Campanella. He was confined to a wheelchair at that time, but my son did get to go down the few bleachers and meet him. That was a great birthday memory.

This was the first Met game I ever attended. 8 years old and my Little League team coach took us all on a bus to the game. I remember that Kranepool and Henderson hit homers which is how I narrowed it down that this was the game. If memory serves one of the homers was to right the other to left center although I don't remember which player hit which.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
