METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 12, 1990 GAME:Bob P
May 13, 2006
Frank Viola wins for the seventh time in seven starts at the beginning of the 1990 season. No other Mets pitcher as of today has ever won his first seven starts of the year.
Only one member of the Dodger starting lineup had a hit: Mike Sharperson, who had three of the four Dodger hits that Frank allowed. Pinch-hitter John Shelby had the other Dodger hit.

Here's what happened hours after this game: Mets manager Davey Johnson and Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda went to Radio City Music Hall to appear in the HBO's "Comic Relief" show and both managers tossed soft baseballs to Billy Crystal who proceeded to hit them into the audience and the higher he got into the upper deck of RCMH, the more money they would raise for the homeless. A wonderful gesture and priceless moment in Mets history in my opinion!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
