METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 17, 1995 GAME:Mets2Moon
September 24, 2001
Nobody remembers the 95 season? Surely it wasn't the best of times for the Mets, although they improved markedly in the second half. On this day, however, I sojurned to Queens for the Major League Debut of Mr. Bill Pulsipher. I remember him warming up to Nirvana's "Come as you are," and I thought it fitting for this fellow who was viewed as a savior. Then he sailed his first pitch to the backstop. He gave up 5 runs in the first, but he certainly was not helped by Brett Butler, who bungled two fly balls, which prolonged the inning longer than it needed to be. To add insult, he wasn't charged with an error either time. Ended up a blowout loss for the Mets, and the start of a rocky road for Pulse.

It was the first Mets game I went to since the end of the 1994 cancellation strike. I remember Pulse pitching and the lineup consisted of Bobby Crybaby, Jeff "The Cable Guy" Kent; Brett Butler and Ryan Thompson, who at times showed 5-tool skills and at other no-tool skills. It was a Saturday Afternoon and Shea was NOT exactly packed to the rafters.

The highlight of the day was the softball game before the Mets game, Phil Niekro's silver bullets I think was the name of them. I should mention, I thought Pulse reminded me of Jon Matlack. Too bad he didn't have the stuff to make it.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
