METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 24, 1970 GAME:
September 23, 2002
This one was a real nail-biter...Singer vs Koosman. In the bottom of the 10th, with two outs and the bases loaded, Tommie Agee stole home with Cleon up!

In the bottom of the tenth, Tug McGraw singled to cf. Tommie Agee tried to bunt him over, but bunted too hard. Wes Parker fielded the bunt and fired to 2b only to have Billy Grabarkewitz drop the ball. Al Weis ran for McGraw at 2b and got picked off. Agee stole 2b and went to 3b on a wild pitch while Bud Harrelson struck out and Ken Singleton walked. Donn Clendenon batted for Mike Jorgensen and also walked to fill the bases. With the count on Cleon Jones 1-1, Agee stole home to win the game.

The crowd numbered around 54,000 this night. I remember Agee's game-winning SB and then crossing paths with announcer Bob Murphy as we headed toward the parking lots. Years later I was supposed to interview Murph at the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Hall of Fall, but he was too sick to travel to North Carolina. He left us shortly afterward.

To date, this is the only walk-off steal of home plate by a Met.
