METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 23, 1984 GAME:
May 20, 2005
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!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
