Nice to have seen the Mets tear up Mike Hampton in the first inning in his return to Shea. A bright spot in a very disappointing season.

My first ever baseball game and first (and as yet) only visit to Shea. I live in Sheffield, UK and was in New York for a month after finishing University and decided to go to a game. I knew it had to be the Mets and not the flash Yankees.
I wasn't 100% certain of the rules but the Mets first inning yielded 4 runs and ended in a 5-2 victory.
A great night. I hope I can return before the move to the new stadium. I distinctly remember chants of 'Yankees suck' on my way out of the stadium.
A great night topped off with a Piazza homer...a great night.

Piazza's home run was estimated to have traveled 463 feet, crashing off the center field camera stand. Take that, Mike Hampton!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
