METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 25, 1983 GAME:R Solomon
April 26, 2002
A cold, raw, wet day at Wrigley. I still managed to get two friends to come with me to see this game. We treated ourselves to upper deck reserve seats to stay out of the rain. Cubs strike for 6 runs in the second. Rusty Staub came in to pinch hit in the 3rd inning. We left in the 7th inning. Who would guess these two teams would fight for the Eastern Division title the next season?

To R. Solomon: you and your friends were among the "crowd" of 6,200 plus that attended the Mets-Cubs tilt at Wrigley. Before 1984, the Cubbies would draw flies if they were out of the pennant race by September (before Harry Carey's 7th inning stretch, WGN America, the lights being installed in 1988 and the yuppie Cub fans riding the coattails of the '84 season). Btw, the attendance figures are courtesy of retrosheet.org which is a great source to look up old baseball boxscores etc...
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
