METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 9, 1991 GAME:Hank M
May 22, 2008
I was at this game, watching from the loge level along the right field line. It was 1-0 Phillies in the bottom of the ninth inning. Rick Cerone came up and slugged one over the left-center field wall off Roger McDowell to tie it up. Len Dykstra just turned and watched it go out.
In the tenth, Hubie Brooks batted against Joe Boever. He hit a long, high drive down the left field line. I followed the ball and when I saw the people seated above the scoreboard all standing up in unison, I knew the game was over. It was coming down right into their section. Hubie had a game-winning home run! It was his first homer since his return to the Mets.
Also in this game, Pete Schourek and Doug Simons both made their major league debuts. Simons finished it and got credit for the win.
Later, I went out behind the bullpen near the players' parking area. When Hubie came driving out, the crowd there gave him a huge cheer. It was a wonderful early-season afternoon at Shea.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
