METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 14, 1987 GAME:
September 26, 2002
This the real game that took place on June 14, 1987, noteworthy because it is the date cited in the classic "Seinfeld" Keith Hernandez spitting incident episode. On the show, the Mets lost to the Phillies at Shea. In real life, the Mets beat the Pirates at Three Rivers. My unhealthy exacting memory for dates recalls this for personal reasons. My girlfriend (now my wife) had to leave town on this date. Yet I still managed to sneak a few peeks at the TV while she packed.
Life is all about striking a balance.

Greg, you are 100% correct. I wonder why the "Seinfeld" producers were so exact about a date - did anyone check to see what really happened on June 14, 1987? Oh, well, its just a TV show.

This was my first Mets game. I was finishing up 1st grade, living in Indiana PA. I wish I could remember the plays, but all I remember is the stuffed Pirate Parrot that Dad bought me.
