I am 38, and this was the first ballgame I ever attended. Tommie Agee hit a walk off homer if I remember correctly.

Tony, you are correct! Agee's two-out homer in the bottom of the tenth after Bud Harrelson reached on an error gave the Mets an 8-6 win in this game.
The Mets were down 6-0 going to the bottom of the eighth but they scored five in that inning and one more in the ninth before Agee won it in extra innings. The Padres made six errors in the game, including four over the last three innings when the Mets scored all eight of their runs.
San Diego OF Johnny Jeter had two homers in the game.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
