METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE OCTOBER 2, 1972 GAME:Mark Price
June 4, 2002
As a 9-year old Montrealer, I attended this game with my father and still remember how cold and windy it was. What can I say, I was awed just to see a MLB game, let alone a no-hitter. The Mets weren't a bad team and one of the few bright lights on the Expos was Bill Stoneman. This was only the second game I ever attended in person. The Mets were probably the one team I saw most against my beloved Expos.
I am a long way from Montreal and Jarry Park as I write this. Jarry Park was small, windy and not very major league. However, the Expos made a big mistake moving to the Olympic Stadium, which contributed greatly to their demise. Just about every seat in Jarry Park was close to the field and it was a wonderful place to watch a game. It is missed.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
