METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 1, 1992 GAME:Howard Fein
June 19, 2004
This was the game that featured the infamous shoving match between Vince Coleman and Jeff Torborg. Coleman was called out on strikes after failing to check his swing. After much arguing, the ump ran him. Vince kept it up, so Torborg came out of the dugout. Player and manager exchanged shoves, much to the delight of the crowd that was numbed by the otherwise dreary 1992 season. The subsequent NL pennant-winning Braves went on to win the game, 4-1. Another all- too-typical outcome for the era.

Howard, wow-I had forgotten all about the shoving match between two of my least favorite Mets of all time!
After Coleman got booted, he was replaced by Ryan Thompson, who made his major league debut in this game and struck out in his first at bat.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
