METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 24, 1997 GAME:Jon
January 29, 2001
This game was a lot of fun. The Mets for the first time in years looked as if they might have a say in the division race, and rallied to beat the Braves in their final at-bat on a single by Carlos Baerga. It was their second straight win over the Braves and fans showing early symptoms of pennant fever left Shea chanting "sweep! sweep!" I was on a first-date with a Braves fan and was slightly embarrassed to be rubbing it in her face, but I did anyway. Too bad we got killed the next night.

Sat in the field level in left-field, saw Baerga's game-tying homer sail past me... then he had the game-winning single! His best game as a Met. I remember being elated, I had gone to the game the night before as well. My dreams of a sweep were dashed the next day when Bobby Jones was rocked. Luckily I wasn't there for that one.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
