METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 19, 1985 GAME:Barry F.
April 22, 2004
A pleasant Wednesday night. 53,334, back when attendance meant something to a Mets fan. Biggest Wednesday night crowd in seven years they said. I sat right near the left field pole in the mez with my father and I don't think I've ever yelled as much or as loud at a baseball game as I did that night. Gooden was almost untouchable and given that the Cubs were banged up at the time, a win seemed like a foregone conclusion. But it was a struggle. 1-0 Mets in the ninth, Cubs got two on and Thad Bosley fouled off pitch after pitch. When Gooden struck him out swinging, Shea erupted. Win No. 3 in a very memorable four-game sweep over the hated Cubs.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
