METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 8, 1962 GAME:
May 3, 2002
This game broke a 17 game losing streak. I had a sprained ankle and listened to the game on the radio. The Met's announcers treated the ninth inning like the seventh game of the World Series.

This was the first game of a doubleheader at Wrigley and the Mets finally ended their infamous losing streak which had reached 17 games. I recall hearing the end of the game on radio after I got home from school - most weekday games on the road were not televised back then. Charlie Neal hit a SF in the top of the 9th to bring in an unearned run to put the Mets ahead, and Craig Anderson saved it for Jay Hook in the bottom of the 9th - although saves were not an official stat yet.
Of course, the Mets promptly went out and lost the nightcap!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
