METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 14, 1988 GAME:
February 21, 2004
The summer of '88 was blistering hot, this day was no exception with temps near 95 degrees. It was my son's 11th birthday and we spent the day together.
The morning highlight was a Len Dykstra autograph signing at the Queens Center, the first signed ball that my son ever received.
The night found us at Shea as the Cards rolled in, I think Luis Alicea made his debut that night and Ojeda tossed a neat cg sho.
My kid got to see his name on the scoreboard as I had arranged for that earlier and the best part, if memory serves me well, his hero, Lenny drilled a triple or a home run, I'm not sure.
It was hot, that I'll tell ya!

FeatFan, according to retrosheet.org, Alicea's first game was 4/23/88. He did have two hits this night off Ojeda. Bobby O scattered nine hits and a walk, and the Cards left eleven runners on base.
Dykstra had three hits: a single to lead off the bottom of the first, a double to drive in two runs in the second, and a leadoff triple in the seventh. Ojeda also had a single and a double and drove in a run.
