This was my first met game attanded and I've been hooked on them ever since, good or bad. I was 10 years old and my older brother suprised me that Sunday morning by telling that he was taking me to the game. I vividly remember a lot this game. It was a scheduled doubleheader against the Colt 45's. Galen Cisco started and never got out of the first inning! The Colt 45's scored 7 runs in the first of the first game. The first Colts batter hit a ground ball to 2nd base and it went right through Larry Burright's legs! A rookie, Rusty Staub was batting 3rd for Colt 45's and was hit right in the head by Cisco and left the game I beleive. Anyway, in the bottom of the 8th, Frank Thomas hit a 2 run home run off the upper deck left field facade of the Polo Grounds to make it 8-3 and then the game was called due to rain and they never played the 2nd game. I also remember that this was the day I found out my older brother (17) was smoking! What a day!

This was my first Mets game too. I don't remember much but I do remember it was raining and that someone was hit in the head. The game seemed to be held up for quite a while. I didn't know it was Rusty Staub!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
