METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 19, 1972 GAME:Dave Shaw
January 17, 2002
I'm pretty sure this is the game I brought my Super-8 movie camera to. It was a Saturday afternoon and I was sitting in my Uncle Kenny's box seats about 8 rows behind the first-base coach's box. I've got speedster Al Oliver rounding the bases on a triple and Clemente jogging out to right-field on film. Pretty cool.

Dave Shaw, if you are still reading these boards, I looked up Al Oliver's career stats against the Mets, and the only triple he hit at Shea Stadium while Roberto Clemente was still alive was on Sunday afternoon April 16, 1972, the second game of the 1972 season. The triple came with two outs and nobody on in the eighth inning off Jon Matlack.
The September 19 game was a Tuesday night at Shea.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
