METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 23, 1984 GAME:
May 20, 2005
This game was preceded by the USA Olympic team exhibition game, which I believe Mark McGwire and Will Clark were members of.
The game also was the first time the "wave" caught on. I'm not a fan of the wave, but at the time, it was awesome!! Being 18 at the time and a long suffering fan at games where there were only a couple of thousand die-hard fans, this was unbelievable to have 40 thousand plus going nuts throughout the game.
I remember Pete Rose hitting into a double play, believe it or not, Sisk was the pitcher. Rose argued at the end of the play and the fans let him have it. It was a great day, great atmosphere and a great game!!

This was special for me because it was the first Mets game at Shea I ever went to by myself. I rode the train from White Plains to Grand Central and then the 7 to Shea. It was Cap Day along with it being an Olympic team exhibition.
And yes, like the other poster said, the wave going through the stands was electrifying. The Mets won, too!
