METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 15, 1977 GAME:Ed K
September 3, 2002
People were watching this game less than listening to the radio at the trading deadline (June 15th back then) and afraid for the worst. After midnight, it was announced that Seaver was traded to the Reds for four players and Kingmen to the Padres for Bobby Valentine. The Mets sank into oblivion under Joe Torre for the rest of the 1970's and into the 1980's.

This was the Day that a sportswriter got Seaver traded. I was at a lost. And we got nothing for him. Mets sunk deep into Grants Tomb. Seaver was the face of the team. We grew up with him and he was ours. At 16 I finally learned that the Pen was stronger than the Man. Seaver jealous of Nolan Ryan???????THAT WOULD BE THE DAY.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
