METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 23, 1995 GAME:Glenn
March 11, 2002
Chris Jones (the Mets pinch hitter du jour at the time -- the Matt Franco type) is batting with two outs in the 9th inning. He hits a long fly ball that lands over the fence right near the right field foul pole. The "homer" would've won the Mets the game; the Umpire ruled it foul.
I'm pretty sure Dallas Green got ejected arguing, and Jones struck out to end the game.
I seem to remember getting free tickets from a kind season-ticket holder for this game.

Glenn, here are more details from your posting in March 2002. Chris Jones actually started this game and batted fifth for the Mets.
The Giants led 3-2 with two out and Chris Jones at bat for the Mets. Jones hit a drive to right field which appeared to be a game tying homer off Terry Mulholland. However, first base umpire Gary Darling ruled the ball foul, even though replays of the hit showed it hitting the fair pole. Mulholland struck out Jones on the next pitch to end the game.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
