METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 11, 1981 GAME:Doug Brogowski
August 7, 2007
This was the last game played before the 2 month long players' strike. I remember that on "Kiner's Korner" after this game, Tom Seaver was Ralph Kiner's guest, having just gotten a complete game win vs. the Mets. At one point, Ralph waved for Tom's wife, Nancy Seaver, who was off-camera, to come onto the set and have a seat next to Tom, which she did. Ralph told Nancy that she looked pretty, to which Nancy replied, awkwardly trying to make a return compliment, "so do you Ralph". Ralph didn't know what to say and Tom Seaver laughed his head off with that high-pitched laugh of his. Very funny Kiner's Korner moment.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
