Of all the Met games I have been to, this was my favorite. I had the worst seats I have ever had, upper deck $10.00 seats. My brother and I didn't have a car so we had to take the LIRR and subway to get there. But this was my favorite. I'll never forget it. Benny Agbayani and Brian McRae with back-to-back homers. What a game. So why was it my favorite? It was the last game that I saw with my brother that summer, before he died. People ask me how I can love baseball. "It's so boring," they say. It's a game of moments. It's a game of memories, because I can remember every event of that day. If I could live a day in my life one more time, it would be that day.

This game sticks out in my mind because Bret Saberhagen was slated to start for Boston--and I was extremely happy to finally see Orel Hershiser pitching for the Mets...though he was clearly heading toward the end of his career.
Of course, Saberhagen didn't hold up his end of the bargain, having cut his hand at his Long Island home the night before.
The other funny part about this game was that I sat with my Aunt in the top row of the upper deck. It was about 95 degrees on the ground that day, but in the Upper Deck the wind was so bad-- and felt so cold--that she needed a bona fide winter jacket to make it through the game!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
