METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 11, 1984 GAME:sportsfan8690
June 16, 2010
I don't remember too much about this game as at this time of the year I was in sleepaway camp. There were no TV's allowed in the bunks at camp nor could we watch tv anywhere in camp, so I always had to go 7 weeks/49 days where I couldn't see the Mets on TV when I was attending camp. My bunk counselors sometimes would have the games on the radio until campers had to be in bed by 9:00pm, so I couldn't always know the result until the next morning.
The Mets did win this game to stay right with the Cubs in the NL East as they went into August for the first time since 1973 with being able to have thoughts of maybe making the playoffs after being nowhere close to the postseason for many years before this. And the Mets gave me a nice birthday present with the win as I celebrated my mitzvah of becoming a man on this day as it was my 13th birthday.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
