METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 29, 1993 GAME:
May 22, 2004
Kenny Greer's only Met appearance and he was the winning pitcher!
June 1, 2004
Ed, not only was it Greer's only Met appearance, but it was his major league debut. He pitched the top of the seventeenth and got the win as the Mets scored the only run of the game in the bottom of the inning on an RBI double by Jeff Kent.
Greer had been acquired by the Mets from the Yankees a year earlier in exchange for Frank Tanana.
This 17-inning game--in the last week of the season between two teams going nowhere--was finished in four hours and 21 minutes. The two teams combined for twelve hits.

This stood as the most innings in a Met game from the period 9-29-93 until 7-7-07 when they beat the Astros in 17 innings as well.
September 28, 2010
Greer won the only game he ever pitched in for the Mets in this looooong game.
I'd LOVE to see this game on tape if anyone has it...maybe SNY has a copy in their vault, but sadly I sincerely doubt it.
