METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE OCTOBER 5, 1986 GAME:Tom Quinn
June 4, 2008
108th and final win of the regular season. I'm amazed we all got so blase about winning by that point. Boy were the playoffs ever a big wake up call. I had a Sunday season ticket plan and it seemed like Sid Fernandez always started the Sunday home games, to the point where me and the other denizens of Mezz. Sect 20 started calling him "Sunday Sid". So it was fitting that he closed this one out.

Lots of memories: 1) Given two tickets by my Uncle and went with my brother. 2) Seats were right behind the middle of the Pirates dugout. I got Barry Bonds' autograph before the game and told him I remembered his father playing for the Yanks. My brother got Bob Walk's autograph and then #88. #88 - turned out he had asked the bat boy (BB) for his autograph. 3) Fans were going crazy when Hernandez was hit in the 1st and saw how locked in Gary Carter was. Stadium went wild as Gary hit the huge homer to back his teammate up. 4) Fun fall day and we knew the team was ready for the playoffs.

I was at this game. My family sat in the mezzanine section and the thing I remember best is when the game was over, the Mets stepped out on the field to thank the fans, and we all cheered. Then they all threw their hats into the front rows, behind the dugouts. I was like, damn, I wish we had seats down there. I don't think I'm imagining this. They threw their hats into the crowd. What a team.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
