METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 13, 1985 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
August 9, 2010
I remember this date well: There was a block party/rummage sale happening on my block but I also had my trusty radio so I could listen to the famous charity rock concert called Live Aid (my area didn't get cable tv until '87) so we had only VHF and UHF. Later that night on Ch. 9, the Mets romped over the Astros but it would be a costly win as Gary Carter hurt his leg (I think) late in the game and would have to miss the All-Star Game at the Metrodome. Then almost 15 years later it would be deja vu all over again (thanks Yogi for that quote) when Piazza would have to miss the ASG in Atlanta due to the pitching of a very nasty man named Clemens and that happened on a Saturday before the ASG as well.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
