The home opener. It was frigid in the shadows that day. What I remember was, before the game, the fella in front of my dad and me remarked to his friend, "This is going to be one of those 5-3 ball games." Translation: There isn't going to be much excitement in this one. And he was dead-on.

My first Mets game. Got me two days off of school because home opener was originally rained out. Remember my aunt taking a wrong turn at the Interboro (aka Jackie Robinson Parkway) GCP split. Remember how empty Shea was. Just looked it up; attendance was 15,205. Remember sitting in Mezzanine Box down the first base line. Mookie 2-5 with a triple and 2 rbi and Flynn 2-4 with 2 runs scored and 2 rbi.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
