METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 17, 1973 GAME:
May 19, 2005
Watching on TV, this was one of the greatest comebacks I had ever seen. Seven in the ninth to pull out an 8-7 win.

I watched this one on TV too. I was 11 at the time. They were down 7-1. Millan walked to lead off the 9th, then Staub homered. Jones walked, then Milner homered. They scratched out 3 more, with Mays driving in 2. I remember how I danced with joy in front of the TV. Great memory!

I was 7 years old, going on 8 at the time. The neighbors were over the house having coffee. Mr. Schuster, a big Mets Fan, had given up on the game. I was watching it alone in the living room. At the end, I went to the kitchen to tell them that the Mets had won. No one believed me.
