METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 4, 1989 GAME:John L.
October 11, 2009
I went with Eddie, a coworker of mine. He had lived in Beach Channel and we passed through his old neighborhood to pick up his friend Joey. We bought tickets at the box office. The seats were located down the left field line near the foul pole. Ed and Joey amused themselves by smoking some pot during the game. Ed thought it was cool when it was posted on the DiamondVision that Reds starting centerfielder Rolando Roomes had attended Beach Channel High School. Because of the location of our seats we could see into the Reds bullpen. Thought it was funny when we saw Rob Dibble flip the bird to Mets fans who were cursing him out when he was warming up late in the game. Left after the top of the 10th. Heard the roar of the crowd outside when Hojo hit a game winning home run off of Dibble in the bottom of the 10th. Ironic, because the last time I attended a Mets-Reds game in April 1985, Strawberry hit a game winning home run off of John Franco to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
