METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 7, 1980 GAME:Mark Heaney
July 13, 2008
I was at Shea and it was one of those brief moments where we were actually playing well and were competitive. I was 17 years old and had brought a friend of mine who was a huge Yankees fan. I can still see it in my mind's eye from the right field stands when Ron Hodges hit a game winning single past the 2nd baseman in the bottom of the 12th after the Pirates had gone ahead in the top of the inning.
I felt so proud that my team wasn't a joke. It was an awesome moment. I remember my friend saying after the game winning hit, "There's not enough room in NY for two good teams." Thanks Ron Hodges, wherever you are.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
