METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 21, 1995 GAME:
September 4, 2003
I was at this night game with my dad, mom, and grandma (dad's mother). I believe it was the same day as my sixth grade class graduation. It was an awful game.
I remember I got Phillies outfielder Tom Marsh's autograph, and he hit two homers in the game. That has happened before with me, such as when I got Moises Alou's autograph at a game in 1994. He ended up whacking two homers in that game, including a bomb that I believe went as high as the upper deck. Bobby Jones started this game, and did not do bad. He only gave up a total of four runs in seven innings. They were not all earned.
My grandma said how she remembers me trying to auction off our season tickets during the game because of how they had been playing. What a graduation gift for the Mets to give me that night, LOL! This was the third game of a four-game series in which the Mets would be swept. The Phillies had been playing awesome baseball.
As for the Mets, this was one of the seasons Dallas Green was managing. Need I say more? But, the game was still fun in a way.

Anthony, look at it this way...you were there for 40% of Tom Marsh's career home runs! Marsh finished his career with five homers in 93 career games, all with the Phillies.
