METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 26, 1975 GAME:Barry F.
March 28, 2002
This wasn't your typical Seaver win. He was on the verge of losing it in the ninth inning, when the offense bailed him out against Andy Messersmith, a good pitcher. Wayne Garrett had been hobbled by ankle problems and came up to pinch hit with two on and hit a ball that hit the top of the fence and bounced over for a game-winning homer in the bottom of the ninth. I was sad when Garrett was traded in 1976, but at least I had this fond memory of him from that day, watching on TV in my living room in Roselle Park.
On a less positive note, my dad also got mad at me that day and ripped up some of my Mets baseball cards. I taped them together and still have most of them, including a Garrett card which was ripped in half, almost right down the middle.

I was at this game. I remember seeing Wayne Garrett and Bob Gallagher around the bat rack. I'm glad they chose Garrett.

I was at this game also! 10 years old. Garrett was my fave Met for a few weeks after that.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
