METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 4, 1980 GAME:Rick
September 27, 2001
First game of a DH. I think the Mets were only about 5 games behind the Expos at this point so it was a big DH. It was a giveaway game, advertised as receiving "a Cream Filled Cake" as only Murph could say. Turned out to be a Twinkee! Twinkee Twi-nighter! The left field field level and Loge had a huge twinkee fight mid game. Oh, thr game...Mets score late and often, I think a Joel Youngblood 3-run job capped a big late inning, to win, close the gap to 4 and set the stage for a memorable game two.

My memory of this game was the Twinkee give away day. They were giving away a case of Twinkees to whoever was sitting in a randomly picked seat. The person that won was sitting above me on the third base side of the field. Sitting below me was a Expos fan with his nice white Expos jersey. You know how New York fans are; don't come to our home and be wearing the opposing teams jersey. Shortly after the case of Twinkees were delivered to the gentlemen that won them, there were Twinkees flying past my head right for the guy in the Expos jersey. A major Twinkee fight was going on and I don't think the Mets ever had another Twinkee give away day to my knowledge.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
