METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 17, 1968 GAME:Tom Quinn
June 3, 2008
My first Mets game. A Friday night outing with the Cub Scouts. Nice night weather-wise. My father made us leave somewhere around the 13th inning. It's almost as if he could smell a Met defeat coming. So I was spared seeing the end of this drawn out loss. The '68 Mets couldn't hit. The truly amazing thing about the '69 Mets is that the personnel wasn't radically different from '68, the '69 team didn't hit much better than the '68 team, and yet the stars were in alignment, the moon was in the 7th house, Messers Armstrong and Aldrin strolled on the moon and somehow the 1969 Mets won the World Series. To quote the famous baseball philospher, "and you could look it up."
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
