METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 13, 1989 GAME:Hank M
May 13, 2006
I watched this game from the front row at Veterans Stadium. My sister was working in Philadelphia and got tickets from her employer, which owned a box along the left field foul line. Before the game, Ron Darling came down to our area and signed autographs.
The game was close for a while, but the Mets then won easily. Gregg Jefferies and Howard Johnson hit homers. Tom O'Malley got a 2-run single in the ninth.
There was one pleasant surprise for us on this night. I looked in front of me and I saw Number 16 walking to the mound. Dwight Gooden was making a relief appearance! He pitched three shutout innings, holding the Phillies down as the Mets slowly piled up runs. What a treat this was!
A Mets' win on the road, Doc in relief and seeing it from a front row seat. Great night!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
