METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 26, 1986 GAME:Richard Biever
October 25, 2001
I drove down to this game from the Indianapolis area to see the Mets and visit a buddy and his wife living in the area and for some r&r.
My friends weren't baseball fans but were willing to join me in my celebration of this glorious season the Mets were having. These three games with Atlanta would be the only opportunities I had to see the Mets this entire World Championship season.
This was to have been a Friday night game, but it was rained out. So, I got to see a double header, my first ever.
My friends were going to act as Braves fans simply to give me a hard time. Instead they ended up consoling me. The Mets looked like the 1983 Mets or something! Keith Hernandez said after the double header it was the worse the Mets had played all season!
Just the luck of a Hoosier-born Mets fan, I guess.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
