METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 17, 1995 GAME:
June 11, 2007
Jason Isringhausen's MLB debut. He pitched a gem that night, and it looked like at least one facet of Generation K (for whiff, which is what the Mets did in choosing Izzy, Pulsipher, and Wilson) would pan out.
Unfortunately, this game was largely overshadowed by the awful TWA 800 crash off the shores of JFK that same night.

Correction, Jared K. The TWA Flight 800 crash happened exactly one year later and on July 17, 1996, the Mets played an afternoon tilt vs the Phillies (I was there because me and my friend bought field level seats off a scalper) and several hours after the game is when the tragedy took place.

Along with Izzy's debut, I remember it was extremely weird to see HoJo in a Cubs uniform during this game. Just didn't look right on him.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
