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