METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 19, 1984 GAME:Jim F
February 16, 2001
It was "Strawberry Sunday" at Shea (sponsored by Carvel) in honor of Darryl's 1983 Rookie of the Year award.
Remember they always said that there was a guy in the minors with him named Ronald McDonald? We could have had Big Mac day too.
I don't remember the game (I was working for Kinney in the parking lot) but I ended up with a TON of half- melted ice cream.

I think Strawberry Sunday came 10 days later on April 29th since this game was played on a Thursday. It was the first game Doc Gooden pitched at Shea and he took a 5-0 lead into his 5th (and last) inning before giving up 4 unearned runs. Craig Swan could not hold the lead for Doc but the Mets rallied and Jesse Orosco won it in relief.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
