February 10, 2002
I was 9 years old and this was my first ever trip to Shea Stadium. The give away itme was a Mets calendar featuring Mets on Sports Illustrated Covers. My dad brought me a pennant and a yearbook. I remember fans chanting Pete Rose sucks everytime he came up and Gary Carter's HR being the only run of the game. I remember being thrilled by the HR apple, and a throw Mookie Wilson made from the OF. It was a fun night and I still have the ticket stub. I also got a scorecard and it was here where I made my first attempt to keep score. All in all it was a fun night and I could not wait for my next trip to big Shea, it was from this game that I became a Mets fan for life. Prior to this game I was a Yankees fan, and even though my father was a Yankee fan he felt the Bronx was unsafe taking me here made me a Mets fan and led to me breaking from my family's Yankee tradition.

I went to this game in college. It was a freezing cold night game, and I sat in the upper deck behind home plate. With Bruce Berenyi pitching, I expected lots of runs, but the Mets somehow shut out the Reds 1-0. I remember that Rose got a hit in the 9th, but the Reds couldn't score.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
