METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 29, 1982 GAME:Shickhaus Franks

I can't believe that anyone else has commented on this game! This was the infamous 9th Inning Seat Cushion Toss when Kingman hit a home run and the Mets were down 5-1 at the time and all of a sudden promotional seat cushions were flung from all sections of Shea and onto the field. I remember watching this on Ch. 9 and to this day, I still am amazed of what happened on that Saturday night.

I was at this game! I just got my driver's license and went to the game with my brother and two kids from our neighborhood. My brother is an Astros fan. The game was a typical 1982 Mets game, no pitching and no offense. People are banging their seat cushions hoping Dave Kingman is going to crank one out of the park. Sure enough in the 9th he hits one into the Houston bullpen and seat cushions go flying everywhere, all over the field. I remeber the Astros 1st baseman didn't even move while the cushions landed all around him.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
