Gooden was on fire that night at Shea and the house was rockin! As he racked up more and more K's, I looked up from my field box seat to the K corner and thought those guys are having a lot of fun up there. Left my seat for the very end of the upper deck in left field. When Gooden would get a 2 strike count, we'd all clap and stomp our feet at the same time until the whole upper deck was bouncing up & down. The security guys had to clear us out because the stadium could come crashing down. He set a personal best that night with 16 K's and matched his rookie win total with 19. The only down side was Chili Davis smacking his fastball around. He was a Met killer.

I was 10 years old when I went with my family to this game. My dad grew up watching the NY Giants at the Polo Grounds so we always saw the Giants play when they came to Shea Stadium.
We sat by the Giants 3rd base dugout and I had the good fortune of watching Dwight "Doctor K" Gooden mowing down the hitters. It was a great night, I remember it well.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
