METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 3, 1984 GAME:Hank M

I went to this game with my sister. We took advantage of an offer by turning in a pair of Coca-Cola cans and getting field-level seats at a discount. This was a promotion being run that season for Tuesday night games.
It turned out to be a great deal. The Mets beat the Astros, 4-3, pinning the loss on Nolan Ryan. George Foster hit a home run OVER the left field bullpen. It just disappeared into the darkness;a monster blast! Keith Hernandez also hit one out, putting the Mets ahead to stay and making Bruce Berenyi the winning pitcher.
One other memory from this night was that the people in front of us were counting the number of airplanes that flew overhead. By game's end, their tally had reached 50! A noisy night, but still well worth the (reduced) price.
