METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 30, 1990 GAME:Howard
March 28, 2004
Wonderful afternoon game at Shea - a gorgeous afternoon with near-perfect weather, rookie sensation 21 y/o Todd Hundley was catching and hit a double, Gary Carter was playing one of his first games AGAINST the Mets in years, and Darryl Strawberry hit a monstrous grand slam deep into the right field mezzanine. All this, and the fun of watching the beer guy tripping four aisles up from my family, sending his entire freshly-filled tray of beer flying - then cascading - down the aisles. . .
A childhood memory not to be easily forgotten.

Everything you said about this game is correct Howard, except this game was a night game, not an afternoon one. I only know because I happen to have the game on tape and was recently watching it.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
