METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 30, 1999 GAME:Hank M
May 22, 2005
I shut this game off in the first inning. The reason for this was not because the Mets fell behind so early, but because I couldn't tell which team was the Mets. On this day, both the Mets and Diamondbacks wore black shirts and black hats. They looked exactly alike! I couldn't watch a game in which I couldn't tell my team from the other. Seeing the result of the game later, I was glad I did.
This has been a problem in the major leagues ever since owners decided to add alternate jerseys to their teams' wardrobes. There have been many games that have had both teams wearing dark shirts, quite often the same color. It's important to distinguish one team from the other, especially if one of those teams is your own. What ever happened to basic home and away uniforms?
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
