Gooden was on fire that night at Shea and the house was rockin! As he racked up more and more K's, I looked up from my field box seat to the K corner and thought those guys are having a lot of fun up there. Left my seat for the very end of the upper deck in left field. When Gooden would get a 2 strike count, we'd all clap and stomp our feet at the same time until the whole upper deck was bouncing up & down. The security guys had to clear us out because the stadium could come crashing down. He set a personal best that night with 16 K's and matched his rookie win total with 19. The only down side was Chili Davis smacking his fastball around. He was a Met killer.

I was 10 years old when I went with my family to this game. My dad grew up watching the NY Giants at the Polo Grounds so we always saw the Giants play when they came to Shea Stadium.

We sat by the Giants 3rd base dugout and I had the good fortune of watching Dwight "Doctor K" Gooden mowing down the hitters. It was a great night, I remember it well.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
