METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 25, 1978 GAME:Mitch
August 14, 2013
I remember this game well. I was 13 and some friends and I got together to go to the game before the end of the year. The Mets were about to complete the second year of the 1977-1983 Dark Era and people were staying away from Shea in droves, especially considering that the Yankees had been to the Series in '76, won the Series in '77 and were about to win another in '78. We were able to get amazing seats behind the first base dugout. I had never sat in that section before. Unfortunately, Silvio Martinez was amazing for the Cardinals (it was his ML debut IIRC) and the Mets scratched out two infield hits for the whole game. Things were bad for us Mets fans then.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
