This is the only Live MLB game I ever saw. I was 11 at the time and it seemed to take forever. Somehow I knew then that I would never really be a fan of the game.

Our 4th grade class attended this game as a class trip. It was a thrill to see such stars as Stargell and Clemente, and of course Seaver and all the Mets. I still remember the sleeveless uniforms - I think this was the first live game I ever saw. The game did take forever, and I couldn't wait until I got home to tell my dad, a big Mets fan, all about it. I thought I would embellish the story and told everyone that it went 21 innings. How would they know - they weren't there, were they? My dad was gracious enough to not give me too hard a time when he read the paper the next day and saw that it was only 17 innings. Great memories.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
