METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 19, 1986 GAME:Hank M
November 25, 2007
I went to this game after suddenly deciding to go that morning. It was Calender Weekend at Shea and the weather was on the cool side.
When I got to the stadium, I bought my ticket (for the regular $8 value) from some people whose friend hadn't shown up. I sat with them in the back row of the loge level on the third base side - where the mezzanine overhang obstructed our view of the scoreboard!
Thankfully, the field was visable. We saw Dwight Gooden pitch a complete game. Gary Carter, who played left field for the first eight innings, drove home Kevin Mitchell with an RBI single that put the Mets ahead to stay. The win gave our guys a 4-3 record, putting them over .500 for good in a World Championship season.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
