METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 5, 1977 GAME:Pete Caldera

This is why this site is so amazing. I recalled going to this DH as an 11 year old, and the only thing I really remembered was that the Mets swept, despite Tim McCarver hitting a pinch-hit solo homer to tie the opener in the ninth inning.

Torre had just been named manager. Sunday doubleheader was with the first place Phils. Even though the Mets won both games and the fans were hoping that this Met team could build on these wins, you could see and feel that my hero's from 1969 had grown old. Even at 17 years old, I knew that this team was heading in the wrong direction because baseball had changed. Free agency had been born in 1977 and Donald Grant was wrong. Seaver was gone 10 days later.
(Long live The little Blue and Orange Machine.)
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
