METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 1, 1984 GAME:Dean
August 20, 2004
This was an incredible DH sweep by the Mets. I attended the game with my brother and dad. We sat behind the Mets dugout and watched Darryl Strawberry have a field day. I believe Gooden set the all-time record as the youngest pitcher to have 200+ strikeouts in one season.
I also remember Kevin McReynolds, the big burly, then center fielder for the Padres, misplay a line shot to center by Strawberry. McReynolds stood like a statue as the ball just kept carrying and carrying...all in all, a great day.
When the games ended, we were walking the Shea ramps out, chanting "Lets go Mets!" and "We want the Cubs!"
Too bad the Mets didn't play with much consistency after their incredible run in June and July. Definitely the beginning of what would eventually end in 1990.

This was the third time in the last 2 months that the Mets overcame a 5-1 deficit in the bottom of the 4th inning. They also did on July 6 and August 26. That is an odd coincidence!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
