METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 3, 1988 GAME:Hank M
March 9, 2005
I remember going to this game on a warm, sunny Sunday. From the upper deck along the right field line, I watched Sid Fernandez throw a two-hit shutout against the Astros. There was only one clean hit, which was a Glenn Davis single to left. The other hit could have been scored an error, but wasn't.
Sid also got two hits of his own, both solidly hit into the outfield, matching the total he allowed.
I also recall that it was Family Day. The players' families were on hand. Mookie Wilson's son Preston, a teenager at the time, was among them.
After the game, I went to visit my uncle, who lived only a few miles from Shea. I stayed with him for about an hour. This turned out to be the last time I would see him alive. He died suddenly the following December.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
