METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 10, 1978 GAME:Great in '78
April 17, 2013
On this sunny brisk Monday afternoon,my day was darkened by the announcement that Craig Swan was pitching. I couldn't believe this fat loser was still a Met and not Seaver. But what the WOR-TV audience was pleasantly surprised by, and Bob Murphy couldn't bear repeating, was Craig's Swan Dive (my term) in poundage. What I witnessed was a new pitcher ready to come into his own. With this brilliant performance, he proceeded to become the second Met to lead the NL in ERA, although like most Met pitchers a victim of gross nonsupport. Despite a career that ended prematurely due to arm injuries, Swannie became one of my all-time faves - and it began on a day where I loathed him as late as 2 PM.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
