METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 19, 1987 GAME:tony56
March 27, 2008
My first road trip to see a Mets game. Some friends and I decided to make a pilgrimage to Pittsburgh for Ralph Kiner Night. Ralph and his wife circled the field in a convertible. His wife saw the banner we had brought and pointed it out to him. I have to say the people of Pittsburgh were great. Very friendly. The game was great too. Hernandez' Grand Slam was the big blow.

I was a freshman at Carnegie Mellon University. A friend of mine and I, both Mets fans from Jersey, took the bus to Three Rivers, bought tickets from a scalper (2 tix for $1!), and sat in the right field seats (seat #13, I remember).
The highlight of the game was Keith Hernandez hitting a grand slam home run right into my arms. As it approached, time slowed down and I thought, "Holy Cow it's coming right at me." I didn't catch the ball -- it bounced off my arm -- but I did leap over the seat to retrieve it before anyone else could get there.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
