METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 6, 1972 GAME:Pat Smith
October 15, 2010
My first game ever! My best friend's communion and his father brought us to the game. Great seats, not far back from the Mets dugout. A beautiful day. A young kid, I was in awe of being at the ballpark. Two distinctive memories, naturally the Mets lost, a precursor to being a Met fan. The fondest memory: Watching Ed Kranepool's Home Run sail over the bullpen wall, standing on my seat to watch it go and go and go ! I was given money from my father for a souvenir; I got a Mets cap. I kept that hat for forever. I wish I still had it. I regret that I do not have the stub from that day.

I remember being mesmerized by the Padres uniforms and asking my father why we couldn't get Ed Kranepool's home run ball. I was fixated with that ball until a stadium employee lazily walked over and picked up what could have been a wonderful souvenir for this seven year old boy.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
