METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 16, 1987 GAME:Hot Foot
March 31, 2010
Yet another one of those '87 games that reminded you this was not going to be like '86. Jeff Innis made his major league debut in this one. As a 9-year-old, I was always excited when a new Met made his appearance on the scene. I liked him for about an inning, until he gave up a bomb to Jeff Leonard in the 10th. After that, he was like Doug Sisk to me.

After some research, I'm fairly certain this was the first game I ever went to. About a month away from my 7th birthday, my dad took me to the Big Shea. I was just starting to follow baseball during what I believe was my first year of tee ball. There's no doubt I went to this game because I know I was at Nestle Crunch Glove day in 1987. I've been able to determine that all of the other games I have memories of attending in those days were after this one -- so I think I can label 5/16/87 as the day I was officially a Met fan.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
