METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 10, 1992 GAME:Mike Pinto
October 1, 2006
I was living in Houston this summer and attended the game at the Astrodome. The girl I was dating was a cocktail waitress at the JW Marriott in Houston and waited on Bob Klapisch, who was a Mets beat reporter for either the Bergen Record or Daily News that year, the night before. Klapisch invited her up to the press-box for the next night's game and told her she could bring "a friend". So about the 4th inning we BS some elevator operator to take us up to the box and then get a security guard to summon Klapisch. He was all smiles coming around the corner until he saw me, then he made up some excuse not to honor the invitation.
We had good seats, about 10 rows behind the Mets dugout, and were surrounded by a large group of friends and family of Anthony Young, a Houston native.
Eddie Murray had a good game including what proved to be the game winning RBI. After the Mets secured the W and as they were coming off the field a bunch of us extended our hands over the dugout to congratulate Murray. Mine was the only white hand and also the only hand that he did not shake.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
