METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 10, 1985 GAME:
December 3, 2002
I think this was the first game I ever saw in person. I've narrowed it down, and it seems the most logical.
The only memories I have are that it was a day game, that Gooden pitched, and that it was against the Cubs. I realize now that it was probably during the summer, had to be on a weekend, and was more than likely in 1985.
Thanks for the help finding this game!

This is the first big league game I attended. All I could recall was that Dwight Gooden pitched and George Foster hit a home run. I think it's truly ironic that the day I decide to look it up happens to be the 20th anniversary of the game itself!
Thanks for preserving Mets history.

I'll never forget this game, it was my first Mets game! I sat in the Upper Deck in Left Field. It was an afternoon game, a hot August day. Foster's home run was a bomb over the centerfield wall if my memory serves me right. Gooden was awesome!
