METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 15, 1973 GAME:Paul N
January 30, 2013
This was the first game that I ever went to. I was ten years old and I believe it was a Banner Day Doubleheader. We drove down from Newburgh, NY in our 1972 Chevy Townsman station wagon. It was my Dad and my brother Steve that went and we sat in the Loge section above third base. I remember walking into the stadium from the concourse and being amazed how green the grass was. The first time we saw Jerry Grote and Wayne Garrett we went crazy because up til then they had just been on TV for us. We had a great time and saw Ferguson Jenkins in the first game which the Mets won and we stayed for about 3 innings of the second game and my brother and I have been Mets fans ever since and have been at even more memorable games in the 80's and 00's, but nothing like your first.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
