METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 22, 1974 GAME:Matt Ward
April 8, 2002
This was the first Mets ROAD game I ever attended...well, actually it was the SECOND Mets road game, because this was the second game of a doubleheader and I was at the first game too! As I recall, this was a twi-nighter (remember those!) I remember sitting out in the outfield stands somewhere and looking down at Don Hahn in CF. Towards the end of game two we moved down to the lower level behind home plate on the first base side. Overall though, it was not a very successful night for the Mets. They lost both ends of the twinbill and the undefeated Mets wives softball team lost their first game to the Phillie wives! All part of a disappointing 1974 season.

A group of friends drove south to attend this twin bill (plus Mets vs Phils wife's softball game between games). Mets ended up 0-3 for the day! We sat in the upper deck behind home plate. During the game, some of our group paraded a "Far Rockaway Loves the Mets" banner around the circular stadium. For their troulbe, they were pelted with all kinds of objects!! I expected nothing less from the Phillies fans.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
