METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 20, 1979 GAME:Jim
April 23, 2003
If I remember correctly, Hebner hit a game winning walk off home run. Listened to it on the radio. Great call by Murph!
February 4, 2007
Richie Hebner hit a big home run in the bottom of the 10th inning of this game. It was a 3-run bomb into the Mets' bullpen in right field that retied the game after the Cardinals had scored three in the top of the inning. The Mets then scored in the 11th and won.
My sister and I were watching and she switched channels after the Cards scored their three runs. I continued to watch in another room. When Hebner came up with two runners on, I told my sister and she switched back to the game. We saw the homer and the game-winning run without any more channel changing!
This game is a good example of Yogi Berra's quote "It's not over until it's over."
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
