METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 24, 1975 GAME:Lou
May 18, 2005
I was at this game. I was 12 at the time and it was another one of those games where Seaver was outstanding but the Mets did not score runs for him. Frustrating. I think he got his 2,500th career strikeout in this game also.

A sunny and hot weekday afternoon at Shea. I went to celebrate my birthday and got to see The Franchise (with absolutely no apologies to the late M. Donald Grant) get his 2000th strikeout against his future team. I had no idea he was close to 2000 but it was neat to be there for it. But it was even better being at Seaver's 300th win, upstaging The Scooter on his day in the Bronx ten years later.

That's right; it was his 2,000 K. I had 2,500.
Seaver is still the best pitcher I ever saw. I did not see Koufax and I saw Gibson after his prime.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
