METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 11, 1979 GAME:Charlie

Surprised out of all the memories here, no one remembers this one. This was "Midget Met Day", not sure if they ever tried this again. I believe the entire upper deck was filled with schoolkids. I myself was a fourth grader. They gave out those miniature bats at the gate, and kids were beating each other senseless with them in the bathrooms.

This one I will always remember.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
