METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 26, 1978 GAME:ScottP
April 20, 2007
This was a weeknight game that a buddy and I took the subway to. It was freezing. Goofball Ed Ott hit an extra inning Homer and we went home cold and disheartened. Sort of emblematic of the '78 season. Luckily, we got an express bus back to the Flatbush/Nostrand Avenue Junction which provided us some solace as well as comfort for our frozen feet.
Until I looked at the box score I didn't even recall that the great Bert Blyleven pitched an 11 Inning Shutout. All I remember is that doggone Ed Ott

Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
