METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 14, 1998 GAME:Anthony
June 10, 2003
Hey there. I remember I attended this game with my dad. I was in ninth grade and on spring break. My great grandma (who was also a big Met's fan) had just died and we had just finished the whole funeral thing. Anyway, it was a cold night. It was Al Leiter's third start as a Met. I remember "Born to Run" by Bruce Springsteen was playing as he was warming up in the first inning. That is a cool song. I downloaded it. That song always reminds me of him as does any song by Bruce Springsteen. He pitched an awesome seven innings this game and the Mets went on to win 7- 0. It was Al Leiter's first win as a Met at Shea. I did not expect him to pitch as well as he has (especially in 1998) when they first got him.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
