This was my first Mets game ever attended. My older brother took me, and I was amazed how big Shea Stadium looked (especially with all the empty seats). I still have 4 pictures I took with a 110 camera. It is great to see the old green walls. I have a picture of John Stearns throwing a ball in from left field (which was one of the positions he played a few times that season), and of of the Reds congratulating Tom Seaver following the complete game shutout.
For years, I was trying to find out the exact date of this game. I knew it was in '78 or '79. I finally found it by looking on this web site.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
