METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 30, 1972 GAME:Peter C.
September 23, 2005
I was 8 years old when I attended this game.It was one of the few times that my biological father came around to spend time with me. He took my mother, one of his nephews and myself. My Mom still talks about it once in a while recalling the great seats (third base field level) as well as a trip to the Diamond Club.
As for the game, I had always remembered the final score and that Jim McAndrew had started for the Mets. Also that the Expo run had come on a steal of home. But for all these years I had always thought that it was Ron Hunt who had made the steal. Not Clyde Mashore.
I have been visiting some of the other games I attended in my childhood. I find it interesting that Mets "closer" Tug McGraw would pitch 2, 3 or sometimes even 4 innings. How times have changed.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
