METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 20, 1986 GAME:

Bob P
March 28, 2004
In one of only eight games he played with the 1986 Mets, John Gibbons was the starting catcher this day. He went 4-for-4: a single, two doubles, and the only homer of his 50-at-bat career.

Gibbons finished his career with eleven hits, and 36 percent of them came in this game!

My dad and uncle took me to this game, my 9th birthday.

John Gibbons and Stan Jefferson both hit their first major league home runs, and the future was looking bright indeed.

I was at this game sitting with my Dad near the right field foul pole in the Loge section (blue colored seats). Very chilly night!

The Von Hayes HR landed a few feet from me, never had a home run ball land that close to me.

Remembered the Jefferson HR as well; thought he and Shawn Abner would be our future fixtures in the outfield.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
