METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 30, 1995 GAME:flushing flash
February 27, 2002
I kept the ticket stub to this game because it will be THE only time I ever pay $1 to attend a sporting event. The strike had ended, the seasson got off to a late start, and the Mets were so desperate for fans that they charged $1 for field level box seats to this game. I was treated to a miserable display of baseball (Kevin Lomon pitched for the Mets -- 'nuff said) and to top it off it rained for most of the game. The highlight was Joe Torre getting ejected from the game for arguing a running inside the baseline call on Jose Oquendo. It was just a year before the Yankees began their nauseating World Series run so it's easy to forget that Torre was in St. Louis and that Buck Showalter was managing in the Bronx.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
