METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 23, 1984 GAME:Ken
May 13, 2008
This game was the first time I thought the Mets were for real in the 80's. Keith Hernandez hit the game-winning single off Neil Allen (who was traded for Keith) after a long long at bat. The fans streaming down the ramps at Shea were yelling "We're Number One" for the first time in a long time.

Sorry Ken, but Wally Backman hit the game-winning single in extra innings. It was my first game (the first one I remembered) at age 7. I was so tired, I kept asking my Dad when it was going to be over. He kept lying to me, saying they would call the game after 3 hours. Wally won it in the 12th! So exciting! The fans streaming down the ramps were yelling, but not "We're Number One". "Wally!! Wally!! Wally!" All the way to the parking lot! Amazing!!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
