METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 5, 1970 GAME:
July 4, 2004
We went to this one, it was a weeknight game. Some of my favorite baseball names were part of this one.
I remember filling in the scoresheet names like Von Joshua, Sandy Vance, Billy Grabarkewitz, Bill Sudakis, Andy Kosco, Joe Foy and Nolan Ryan.
For some reason, the speedy young Dodger leadoff hitter, Joshua impressed us. Might have been a nice running catch or a baserunning deal but this game and his play stayed with me.
Joshua put together a few good years and was a similar but not as good version of another great sounding name, Al Bumbry!
But,say hey, What's In A Name?
