METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 14, 1988 GAME:Joshua Spitz

This was the first Mets game I ever attended. I was 11. It was a scheduled double-header with activities between the two games. We watched the beginning of the game at home on TV and then listened to it on the radio as we drove to Shea. It was the ninth inning by the time we could see the field. As we walked to our seats, the Mets proceeded to load the bases. It was a Sunday game and the Mets were in first in mid August and it was a beautiful day. So Shea was packed. We had just made it to our seats when Tim Teufel hit a sacrifice fly to left field. It was a close play at the plate, but when the umpire called Hojo 'safe', Shea erupted.
