METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 22, 1985 GAME:Rusty is Straight!!!
November 29, 2007
This game was memorable for me because it was the first and only time I've ever caught a foul ball. Howard Johnson fouled off a pitch from Mario Soto, I was sitting in Section 1 Row A in the Loge. This game was a typical Sid Fernandez game...he had a no-hitter with 12 strikeouts through 6 innings but then got tired (as El Sid tended to do). Soto pitched a great game that night too and so it was a 0-0 game going into the seventh. Sid fell behind the leadoff hitter in the 7th and then imploded (as El Sid tended to do).
Still, for me it was one of the most exciting games just because I caught a foul ball. (The ball is in a case somewhere in my attic right now.)
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
