METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 19, 2001 GAME:Michael SanPietro
April 1, 2008
This will probobly be my last visit ever to Shea Stadium. I haven't lived in NY for over 20 years at this point. Anyway, It was also my last pre 9-11 flight as well. Ok, very hot Saturday afternoon. The game was on FOX and I got a field level seat and sat next to some guy that still acted like the Dodgers were in Brooklyn. Kevin (bad contract) Appier started and kept them close and then the pen let them blow it wide open. Alfonzo went yard and then so did I since I knew it was a lost cause. There was a Met home run in the 9th. Since 2001 , I have been to six Met games at Turner Field in ATL. I will have to go to Citi Field in 2009 to see the Mets defend their World Series win of 2008.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
