This game was preceded by the USA Olympic team exhibition game, which I believe Mark McGwire and Will Clark were members of.

The game also was the first time the "wave" caught on. I'm not a fan of the wave, but at the time, it was awesome!! Being 18 at the time and a long suffering fan at games where there were only a couple of thousand die-hard fans, this was unbelievable to have 40 thousand plus going nuts throughout the game.

I remember Pete Rose hitting into a double play, believe it or not, Sisk was the pitcher. Rose argued at the end of the play and the fans let him have it. It was a great day, great atmosphere and a great game!!

This was special for me because it was the first Mets game at Shea I ever went to by myself. I rode the train from White Plains to Grand Central and then the 7 to Shea. It was Cap Day along with it being an Olympic team exhibition.

And yes, like the other poster said, the wave going through the stands was electrifying. The Mets won, too!

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.
