METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 11, 1994 GAME:Joe From Jersey
December 21, 2005
I was at this game. Cyndi Lauper sang the national anthem and some of the '69 Mets threw out the first pitch. Willie Banks from Jersey City pitched for the Cubs; He was a phenom at St. Anthony's High School as a pitcher and he was also a good hoops player off the bench for Bob Hurley's legendary teams. I remember Jeromy Burnitz messing up in the outfield and the fans got on him. I was sitting in the Loge in rightfield that day. Randy Myers came in the 9th to stop a Mets rally and I think he struck out Burnitz. Btw, the game wasn't sold out; there were 10,000 empty seats, a reminder of the horrible '93 season.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
