METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 12, 1972 GAME:HM
August 18, 2011
This was the first game Willie Mays was in uniform for the Mets. The Mets had completed the trade with the Giants earlier in the week. I was at the game with my dad, who died 2 months later, one of the last games he and I went to. I remember when John Milner came out of the dugout, everyone mistook him for Willie and gave him a standing ovation, until they saw it was number 28, not number 24.

Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
