METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 12, 1979 GAME:

The Mets scored a club record 10 runs in a single inning, including an inside-the-park three-run homer by Doug Flynn when Cesar Geronimo misplayed his fly to deep center. Possibly the highlight of the season.

I was at this game and remember Flynn's inside- the-parker and the 10-run inning.
Although the game was in June, it was fireworks night and after Flynn hit the homer they lit up big 'LETS GO METS!' sign made behind the left center field fence.
The crowd went nutty.

The first time the Mets ever scored ten or more runs in an inning. They would not do so again until 6-30-2000 in the celebrated come-from-behind victory against the Braves.

Attended game while on a biz trip to NYC on my birthday. Approached a 'scalper' who was negotiating with another who was going overboard low-balling. The scalper was exceedingly frustrated, turned to me for a different offer. As I mentioned it was my birthday, he gave me the ticket for free and said "Happy Birthday". The ticket was behind home plate, up a bit, but a great game view. After the 5th inning was completed, a total of 15 runs scored, 10 by the home team, I took a picture knowing that this was a rare feat. Probably the first time ever to a Mets game. Maybe have seen them once or twice since.
