METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE OCTOBER 3, 1993 GAME:

This game was so unmemorable that nobody remembers it was never actually finished! It was called in the bottom of the 9th with none out after Destrade singled. The final score should actually be 3-2, and such hits as Gooden's PH 3B and a HR by Chico Walker, who was given his release before the game, didn't actually count. But this was such an unmemorable game that nobody bothered to erase the Mets 6-run 9th.

Chico Walker's ninth inning solo home run came in the final at bat of his major league career.

The Mets finished the year with a 6 game winning streak and lose 103 games! Don't know much about this game, but Chico Walker was a character on those putrid teams. His facial expressions showed the look of a depressed loser. But I love Chico anyway. I wonder what the look on his face after he hit the home run?
Wish it were easier to access tape of any game, instead of the limited amounts they overprice at MLB.com. Should I call the stations if I wanted this? Eh.. they probably burned it.

Since I was attending college in Miami at the time I was able to go to this game. The Mets played well as they would sweep the series and win six straight to end the season. One of the real few bright spots for the Mets in 1993. Although they swept the first-year Marlins to end the season it was not enough to escape last place.
I had a great time at the game like I always do until the bottom of the 9th with one out the heavy rains suddenly came. I waited around for about an hour hoping to see the finish but the rain never let up and I needed to get back to school to work on some term papers and projects. After another two hours the game was finally called and 1993 was over.
