METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 23, 2000 GAME:Jared K
September 3, 2005
This was a great day. We went down to Philly after my father's 25th high school reunion. He, his best friend from high school, and I met my uncle down at the Vet. He's probably one of the most rabid Phillie fans there is. He got us tickets directly behind home plate for my birthday, four rows back. He was yelling like crazy at the Mets players.
My best memory was when he was calling out Edgardo Alfonzo for not hurrying to the plate fast enough and taking too much time out of the batter's box between pitches. Alfonzo slams this massive upper deck homer, and as he's circling the bases, coming around third, he's staring down my uncle the whole way down the line until he reaches the dugout. My uncle shut up the rest of the game.
Hampton had his good stuff that night, and his performance kept the winning momentum going.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
