METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 1, 1979 GAME: john m
Mets had some promotion with I believe Dairylea and sponsored a high school journalist night - a special press conference was held with Pete Falcone as the token Met (I guess Nino Espinosa was unavailable). I believe the event was the 100,000 free Dairylea ticket given out. Anyway, the sandwiches were stale, the giveaway clipboard cheap, and my school paper editor didn't have time to finish another issue so my article never ran. Oh, by the way, the Padres and Gaylord Perry easily won - I can't remember any of the details otherwise and the box score didn't help.
