I remember bringing a transistor radio to my High School with me and listening to the score whenever I could sneak in the ear phone in class. The weather in Chicago was brutal and it seemed that the game would end in a snowstorm.

It was an incredible August and September when the Mets, left for dead, came off the mat and made it to the 7th game of the Series.
